Conference: October 22, 2022

Southwest Communication Association

Saturday, October 22, 2022

Glendale Community College

9:00 a.m. to noon; business meeting to follow

Hello colleagues!

It has been a few years since the Southwest Communication Association (SWCA) held its annual conference. As we attempt to move post pandemic (or “through pandemic”) we are planning our first comeback event for this October.  We hope that all of the Maricopa sister colleges as well as the major Universities and Colleges with communication programs in Arizona get involved and participate. Our goal is to promote communication program opportunities for students across the state.

We are planning to hold an SWCA Fall event (What Can You Do With a Communication Degree) to showcase graduates from all two and four-year communication programs across Maricopa on Saturday, October 22nd from 9-12 at GCC’s main campus. Our hope is that faculty will come to learn what former students are doing with their degrees and current and prospective students will have the opportunity to meet and interact with colleagues who are out in the “real world.”

Following the event, we are planning a short business meeting to discuss the future interest in and possibilities for SWCA. We’d really love to have your participation as we consider the various ways to reimagine our regional communication conference.

Our specific requests are for you to A) invite your students and faculty to attend the event and B) provide the contact information for any graduates who might be interested in sharing with current and prospective students what they can do with a communication degree.

I’m happy to answer any questions and invite suggestions!  Please let me know if you would like to participate in this event.

Thank you for your time!  I look forward to hearing from you!
