2014 Central States Communication Association Conference
April 2 – April 6, 2014
The Public Relations Division welcomes submissions of papers and panel proposals for the 2014 CSCA Conference. Any topic related to public relations is welcome; however, we especially encourage submissions that focus on the theme of the convention. Additionally, we strongly encourage undergraduate and graduate student papers. We welcome papers and panels on a wide range of topics, including those related to the convention city of Minneapolis. We also encourage programs that incorporate public relations practitioners through roundtable discussion panels or other formats. A variety of formats are also welcome, including competitive paper panels.
