Dear CTEC Members,
I am excited to be leading the division this year as Head of CTEC. I have been a dedicated member of the division for the past eight years and look forward to shaping the direction of the division this upcoming year.
The officers and I have been very busy planning next year’s conference in San Francisco and hope to see all of you there. We are excited for the collaborative opportunities that will be available for our division in one of the best communication technology capitals of the world. We will keep you updated as deadlines for papers, the Best of Digital competition, and the Midwinter conference approach.
We have also been busy working on refining the specific mission for our division and what makes CTEC uniquely different from other divisions and interest groups at AEJMC. We are focusing on how our division brings together researchers, teachers and professionals across divisions who are interested in how emerging communication technologies are changing media, organizations, and society.
Our division goals for this year include increasing membership, continuing to refine the CTEC identity and brand, increasing communication with our membership, increasing AEJMC interdivision collaborations, and continuing to promote and maintain the Gene Burd Communication Technology Division Research Award. On top of that, this year we will also be undertaking a CTEC program review and appreciate your feedback and perspectives on how our division can continue to grow and thrive.
CTEC strives to create a sense of community for our members through our website, Facebook page, and Twitter account. Be sure to sign up for our listserv to receive up-to-date information like panel calls, paper calls, job opportunities and more.
We look forward to engaging with you this year!
Cindy S. Vincent
AEJMC CTEC Division Head
