Central States Communication Association 2019 Annual Convention

Central States Communication Association 2019 Annual Convention

We were delighted to host a table at the Central States Communication Association (CSCA) 2019 Annual Convention! It was great to meet new instructors and professionals in the discipline, showcase our titles, and visit with our authors in person.

During the convention, three Cognella authors, Scott A. Myers, Jimmie Manning, and Amy Aldridge Sanford, were recognized by CSCA for their incredible contributions to the communication discipline. In addition, a panel on which Scott Myers and Cognella Publisher Todd Armstrong sat received a Top Panel designation. Read the press release to learn more about these honors and the exceptional ways in which our authors are advancing the discipline.

Check out our photos from the conference below, as well as our list of new and coming soon titles in communication studies. If you’re interested in adopting a title or talking to one of our acquisitions editors about publishing a book with Cognella, fill out our form, and one of our team members will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
