Student Column: Important Items for ICA Student Members - Student Survey and New Campaign

survey

For most student members of the International Communication Association, it is still summer holiday time: enjoying time spent with family and friends, visiting places in the country of residence or abroad, maybe getting a suntan. Yet, this is also a good time to plan ahead: the course schedule for the fall semester, the activities for the next academic year, the research projects to start or to bring to a publishable format, the conferences to submit to and to attend.

We would like to ask you to add two more items to your planning agenda: filling the student survey that will be sent to you by ICA's leadership, and taking an active role in our new campaign for attracting new student members to the association.

You will soon receive an e-mail directing you to the student survey. Please take the time to complete this survey. You will be invited to provide your thoughts about the 2011 conference and recent newsletter materials, as well as about what the Student Affairs Committee can do to enhance your conference experience and better inform you about ICA's opportunities. We need your opinions about what has been done and your suggestions on what should be improved in order to effectively cater for the needs of the association's student members and in order to plan a successful series of student-centered events for next year's ICA conference.

Additionally, we will launch the "Bring a Peer" campaign this fall. Please consider promoting our association to your colleagues who are not ICA members yet. If you have enjoyed networking with established and emerging scholars at conferences, reading the association's journals in print and online, or contributing to scholarly and professional discussions as part of ICA, it would be great to let others know about these and encourage others to take advantage of these. We would all benefit professionally if you bring a peer along when you renew your membership, submit a proposal, or register for next year's conference.

Enjoy the remaining of the summer, and good luck with your planning for the new academic year!
