About Us

The Maryland Communication Association is a group of communication educators, students, and professionals throughout the state of Maryland. Many of our members are active researchers and authors in the field as well as past officers of regional and national communication associations.

Our History

Our roots are in the Maryland Communication Cooperative, formed in 1973. From 1986 to 1997, a state association ceased to function, but in September 1997, the Maryland Communication Association formally reorganized. Among our most notable accomplishments since then is the pivotal role we took in the shaping and adoption of statewide competency standards for Communication courses in General Education Programs and our current participation to facilitate articulation agreements in Communication in the State of Maryland.
