Dear IECA-members, colleagues and friends, 

we wish you all the best for a happy, amazing and fulfilled 2023! 

For you as an IECA member, this new year will be an exciting one!

1. We will hopefully meet again at our annual conference, COCE at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia at the beginning of June (5.-9.): https://www.theieca.org/conference/coce-2023-harrisonburg; please don’t forget to register for the conference: https://www.theieca.org/conference/coce-2023-harrisonburg/registration

If you’re considering to travel to Toronto for ICA just before that, at the end of May, there are two post-conferences that nicely „bridge“ the two conferences: 

- Sustainability Communication in the local arena, 30.5., deadline for abstract submissions 17.2.2023: https://www.icahdq.org/mpage/ICA23-PostconfCFPSustainabilityCommunicationinLocalArenas 

- Authentic Voices in Science Communication, 30.5., deadline for abstract submissions 23.1.2023, https://www.mscl.de/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/2023-CfPAuthenticVoicesInSciComm-ICA-PostCon.pdf

And in case you’re considering to transition from ICA to COCE in a sustainable way (e-car/train/bike), please get in touch with Franzisca: franzisca.weder@gmail.com

2. Next to the conferences, we want to draw your attention to our great journal, Environmental Communication

If you have a nice paper that sits at the intersection of environmental and science communication, please submit your thoughts, findings, concepts and insights to the Special Issue on „The authority of science in a crisis narrative“ until Feb., 28.: https://think.taylorandfrancis.com/special_issues/environmental-communication/

Also, IECA and Taylor&Francis are recruiting a new Editor-in-Chief, please read the call for applications here https://think.taylorandfrancis.com/editor_recruitment/environmental-communication/?utm_source=TFO&utm_medium=cms&utm_campaign=JSA33389&_ga=2.135902769.169588881.1672779903-183146682.1672779903&_gl=1*s5d6ln*_ga*MTgzMTQ2NjgyLjE2NzI3Nzk5MDM.*_ga_0HYE8YG0M6*MTY3Mjc3OTkwMy4xLjEuMTY3Mjc4MDA4OC4wLjAuMA..

3. The beginning of 2023 is also an exciting moment to ask for your wishes, interests and engagement

Please let us know about your ideas for IECA, the website, content and information that you’re interested in and other forms of engagement that you can imagine, renew your membership (https://www.theieca.org/membership), and please spread the word :)!

Get in touch with the chair (franzisca.weder@gmail.com) or the new Executive Director Katie Hunt (katie.hunt@theieca.org) with your thoughts and questions.

Best wishes, 

Franzisca for the IECA board
