CTAM Conference 2022September 15-17 at Southwest Minnesota State University
There’s something about the word ‘reunion’ that tends to bring up contrasting emotions for me- Family reunions as a child were just a time to meet a bunch of disconnected relatives who couldn’t remember if I was “the sporty one” or “the artsy one” of my parents’ two daughters (I’ll let you folks guess which one is correct).
As I’ve become part of this community, however, I have looked forward to the yearly reunion of professionals from speech, theater, and communications programs across the state. The opportunity to mingle, engage, and learn alongside members of these communities has long been one of the highlights of my year, and I’m sure that many of you feel the same about this conference.
A little over two years ago, our communities experienced a radical shift as ‘virtual’ became the new normal, bringing its own set of unique challenges. Now that we are slowly returning to in-person activities, we look forward to being ‘Reunited’ with one another. However, we acknowledge that this transition is not without its difficulties, drawbacks, and compromises.
This year’s CTAM theme celebrates our opportunity to meet with one another in person again, but also addresses our need to come together to problem-solve new challenges that our communities and activities are facing as the world continues to change day-by-day. We know that collaboration breeds innovation, and that the best way to support and strengthen our programs is to work together to cultivate new ideas, strategies, and best practices.
I look forward to seeing you there!
