The NCA Annual Fund

As we celebrate the National Communication Association’s many recent and past accomplishments, we remember the tireless dedication of those speech teachers who daringly proclaimed, just over 100 years ago, the virtue of teaching and studying human communication. Join us as we renew our commitment to fulfill their promise and make real their dream for a vibrant and meaningful NCA, prepared to lead for the next 100 years.

Reporting on the establishment of the original National Association of Academic Teachers of Public Speaking, Founding President James O’Neill said in 1915:

“There is much work to be done. All who believe that it is worthwhile should help in the doing of it. Those who take part in all the work that is before us can with better grace and better appetite enjoy whatever benefit this work produces.” 

NCA supports its members and the discipline of Communication in many ways including:

Student Support
Teaching Initiatives
Discipline Advocacy
Research Initiatives
Professional Development

Make a gift to NCA and help build a foundation for the next 100 years.
