The room is M, Tryolka. Before that is the panel on Top papers. At the following dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uct43s5cozjju88/AAC2wKLiAzw5r1ETsOgFl-SOa?dl=0 you will find a copy of the minutes from the 2017 business meeting and the vice chair's report to ICA. I will not be bringing printouts - I am going to assume that most of us have some form of shared or individually owned device from which you can either print your own copy or view a copy. See you all this afternoon! Radhika (the GCSC planner and vice chair for 2018 ICA at Prague)

Shiv Ganesh wrote on the Divisions: Global Communication and Social Change wall: Greetings, GCSC-ers! ICA is almost upon us, and I’m sure you’re looking forward to meeting in Prague. Radhika has put together a fantastic programme for the division, and I hope you’ve been able to peruse the programme to see what you’ll be able to attend. The conference is shaping up to be one of ICA’s largest, with over 3400 particpants already pre-registered. We will not be quite like sardines in a tin can as we were in London, but the growth of the association has outpaced predictions in recent years, so space will be at a premium. This is a good problem to have for the most part, so long as we can keep our acceptance levels at reasonable levels. The association is working hard to make sure that conference space over the next few years is increased. We’ve finalized our list of prizewinners, and I’m happy to announce the following: The book award goes to Patrick Murphy for his fantastic new book “The Media Commons: Globalization and Environmental Discourses.” This year, competition was extremely tight, so we are awarding a runner-up prize to Julia Sonnevend for her compelling book “Stories without Borders: The Berlin Wall and the Making of a Global Iconic Event.” I’m also happy to announce that the African Journalism Studies for the best paper relating to Africa is going this year to Godfried Asante and Rita Daniels for their paper titled “(Re)defining Images of African Women: A Post-Feminist Critique of the Ghanaian YouTube Series "An African City." We will be giving out these three awards along with the top paper awards and top student paper awards at our business meeting on the 27th of May at 5 pm at the Hilton Prague hotel. The room is M, Tryolka. And once again, let me remind you that our joint reception with the Organizational Communication and Public Relations divisions will be from 5.30 to 7.30 pm at Pivovar U Supa, the oldest bar and brewery in Prague. It is a ten to fifteen minute walk from the Hilton Prague. All new division members (and anyone else who’d like to show up) are welcome to meet up with me and the other division officers, Radhika and Yu Hong, at about 4.45 pm in the Hilton Prague lobby for a quick drink before we walk over to U Supa at 5.15 pm. Drinks (no charge) and light food will be on hand at U Supa. We’ll be sure to thank the sponsors for helping the three divisions for this year’s reception. Cheers, safe travels, and see you all very soon! Shiv GCSC Division Chair

Shiv Ganesh wrote on the Divisions: Global Communication and Social Change wall: ICA is just about two months away from us now, and it's time to let you know about the division reception. This year we decided not to have the division reception immediately after the business meeting because the business meeting is on the 27th, which is the last day of the conference and we wanted to make sure that as many people could come to the reception as possible. So, we've joined forces with two other divisions-- Organizational Communication, and Public Relations-- to pool resources and have a reception on the 26th from 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm. Because of economies of scale, we're able to host the reception at U Supa, which is Prague's oldest brewery and restaurant. It's a 7 minute walk from the Prague Hilton according to Google Maps (or nine minutes, if you get lost and go around in a circle, as I am almost certainly destined to do). The address is: U Supa, Celetná 563/22, 110 00 Staré Město. Economies of scale also mean that we were able to get an open bar (beer, wine, soft drinks, and water), salad bar, cheese platters with grapes and walnuts, and local snacks. These items are all complimentary during the two-hour reception. So please mark the 26th of May in your conference calendar, and join us from 5.30 to 7.30 pm! For those of you who are directionally challenged, several of us plan on meeting at the Prague Hilton Lobby at 5.20 pm and walking over from there. And if you're a new member and don't know people but would like to connect, in keeping with the informal and inclusive culture of this division, please do drop me a line and I'll make sure we can meet beforehand and Radhika and I will introduce you to other folks who will be there! Cheers, Shiv Ganesh GCSC Division Chair
