Changes in Journal Subscriptions with Membership in NCA

Submitted by syntaxfactory on May 15, 2014 - 11:44am


Alas, I did not receive the email, but...

I understand that the benefits of membership in NCA (National Communication Association) has been reorganized such that paper copies of journals are no longer mailed to subscribers?

I would love to hear more about this, especially as someone who has long been a member of both NCTE and NCA. NCTE journals and membership have always been cheaper, I think.

But NCA is more tightly circumscribed in the mission and emphases of the journals, and more essential in the P&T process for a Comm person than NCTE journals might be for a rhet person.
