Start your spring off with new perspectives by attending the Midwestern ABC Conference in Minneapolis, MN April 3-4, 2014.  Hosted by the UST MBC and Opus College of Business at the University of St. Thomas, in the heart of the city, the event will include thoughtful sessions, great conversations, and an outing to one of the many theaters in the downtown area. We look forward to seeing you there!

The conference theme, “Into the Wilds of Business: Understanding Organizational Voices and Practices, and Translating to the Classroom,” has generated a variety of thoughtful presentation topics.

Increasingly, communication in, around, and about organizations takes place in uncharted wilderness. The result is communication that organizations don’t and often can’t control.  Practitioners and researchers have only begun to explore these areas on the fringes. This conference represents a platform to highlight niches that are not formally part of the organization’s communication, the adoption of social media for corporate intranets, media to speak with internal and external audiences, and cultures that evolve around formal and informal channels of communication. The wilderness can be a little frightening at times, but it can also be exhilarating and inspiring to see things as they naturally occur.
