Welcome to ANZCA
Welcome to the website of the Australia and New Zealand Communication Association. You’ll find information on conferences, on the journals we own and are affiliated with, and a rich archive of papers on communication and material about the association.
If you look up to the ANZCA header, just above this message, you’ll see a quote from Professor Lelia Green, one of our dynamic past presidents, “ANZCA is a rare thing in today’s scholarly world: a generalist organisation… very few organisations are as diverse and as friendly.” I want to second that emotion.
