Welcome to the New Zealand Communication Association (NZCA)
2013 Conference: Waiting for the Communication Revolution
He aha te kai ō te rangatira? He Kōrero, he kōrero, he kōrero.
25th NZCA Annual Conference
Travelodge Wellington 2, 3 December 2013
Over the 25 years that we have hosted conferences, communication channels have been multiplied and in some organisations, communications have improved, but for the vast majority, workplace communication is still a major impediment to both organisational effectiveness and individual well-being. What are the solutions? How will the breakthroughs come? Read more about the conference here.
See our blog for details of presenters as they are announced.
Communication Journal of New Zealand, Special Issue: Communication within Organisations
Papers are invited for a special issue of CJNZ focusing on communication within organisations. Communication within the organisation, including the ways in which the organisation communicates with its people, has a profound influence on organisational performance and effectiveness. This can be seen for instance in the ways in which the organisation constructs itself as a unique and attractive entity to its employees, creates and/or remembers its history, constructs an organisational identity and upholds its goals, policies and ideas (read more).
The Inside Story (Conference)
Bringing you face to face with the editors, journalists, presenters and bloggers who construct the stories that shape how stakeholders view your organisation. A space to gain a deeper understanding of each others needs, and to stimulate practical and frank discussion. For more information see the Conference Website or our blog.
Members enjoyed an inspiring conference at Wintec in Hamilton. A feature of this conference was a increased number of students participating. Conference abstracts and presentations will be available here soon.
