       World Communication Association North America invites you to attend an extraordinary summer conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, August 2-5, 2016. This interdisciplinary conference allows people from a variety of disciplines to explore the many facets of communication, culture, and sustainability. So far we have speakers from a variety of interests: environmentalists, health and leisure, marketing, consulting, listening, law, ethics, communication, and indigenous issues. There will be special opportunities for students: poster sessions, mentor sessions, and new research ideas where we will try to match student interests with content and methodology experts to pursue potential research projects.

       The theme of the conference is "COMMUNICATION AND CULTURE IN A SUSTAINABLE WORLD." Everything we do, as individuals and a global society affects the world as a whole. This conference will open up the dialog on sustainability and work to uncover what sustainability means to people and how it affects them, the sustainability of a job, a business, a learning curve, an ecosystem. For example:

       An office manager might speak about issues on the culture and communication skills of people entering the work force and how they need to be able to communicate. They would be speaking about the culture and communication skills needed to sustain their business.

       A school teacher might speak from the perspective of having a class room full of ESL students that speak very little English. There might be four or five languages being spoken and as a result very little teaching taking place. Sustainability to the teacher might be the ability to impart ideas to the students in a timely fashion.
