Communication Association at UCSB
The Communication Association at UCSB is a student-run organization dedicated to providing students with an outlet to explore the multi-faceted Communication major. The club also offers students a place to participate in workshops, listen to guest speakers, meet other students within the this discipline, and showcase what the world of communication has to offer. Read more about the Association in the Spring 2011 Gaucho Communicator (p. 13).
For those of you who are not communication majors, we also want to encourage you to look into what our organization has to offer. The Communication Association can help those studying all fields because communication is essential to our everyday lives. Communication is the primary function in our relationships, networking, personal lives, and is a vital component of all careers.
GENERAL MEETINGS: Bi-monthly, Tuesdays at 6:30pm. MEMBERSHIP DUES: $10 per quarter or $25 a year.
Communication Association Officer Positions
All Officers serve as committee leaders and delegate certain tasks to members of their team. Each officer is in charge of ensuring the completion of tasks by their team members.
Being an officer is a valuable career experience and a great resume builder; however, it is important to consider the amount of time you have to commit to this organization. It is best to think of officer involvement as an extra class - you must attend speaker presentations, workshops, and planning meetings. Additional work on your own will also be necessary. If you do not have enough time to dedicate, consider being a team member rather than an officer. In order to build an outstanding organization, officers must be fully committed to the goals and purpose of Communication Association.
If you have any questions about the Association or would like to be a Communication Association officer for the 2012-2013 academic year, please see our Facebook page or website, attend our events, and/or contact any of our officers.
