The department of Business Communication was busy at this year's National Communication Association convention in Philadelphia. Faculty members (l-r) Stephanie Verni, Chip Rouse and Leeanne Bell taught a short course on their new textbook, "Event Planning: Communicating Theory and Practice." Attendees included event planning teachers, professionals in the field of event planning, and members of hospitality departments.

Dr. Heather Harris and Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus participated in NCA's Legislative Assemblies, and Dr. Harris presented in a panel called "Communicating Civic Callings: Muted, Marginalized, and Magnificent Black Women’s Voices," which was chaired by Dr. Deric Greene.  Dr. Bell McManus also participated in Eastern Communication Association Executive Council meetings and presented on a panel titled "Heeding the Call: Promoting Civic Engagement with Communication Ethics Activities and Resources forAny Class." She also continued her work with the Communication Ethics division of NCA. Dr. Nadene Vevea, associate dean of the communication programs at Stevenson, also attended the convention.

Congratulations to all the members of the department.

Senior Kelsey Marden will graduate in December, 2016, with an array of well-developed skills in her toolbox, including new online design abilities that she has used in her current internship at Baltimore magazine. Under the direction and mentorship of Mike Smith, the online manager (shown here with Kelsey), she has been moving articles from print to digital platforms, learning about how to make the online site engaging, interactive, and enticing. Kelsey's own design aesthetic, including her work in photography, has enabled her to catch on quickly to this new area of web development.

This year's "Steve Talks" event drew a large crowd from the School of Design, including lots of Business Communication students and alumni.
