ECA panel 2021Three professors presented last week at the annual Eastern Communication Association Convention. Typically held each year at locations on the East Coast, the convention pivoted to a virtual conference, and panelists presented and attended via Zoom. Professors Leeanne Bell McManus, Chip Rouse, and Stephanie Verni (pictured with other presenters), authors of "Event Planning: Communicating Theory and Practice," presented on two panels; one panel discussed event planning in crisis, and the other panel covered reducing student anxiety in a pandemic. The Eastern Communication Association is the oldest professional communication association in the United States, established in 1910. Members collaborate on research and share best teaching practices in this service-oriented organization.
