Cuny Receives Advocacy Award

Speaking Center Director, Kim Cuny earned the 2018 Turner Advocacy by the National Communication Association for her national support of the work done by communication centers.  From the nomination:

Since Kim’s affiliation with the National Association of Communication Centers and the Communication Center Section of the National Communication Association in 2003, she has worked to help activate, organize, and build our communication centers community wherever possible. Kim’s leadership to the organization demonstrates her commitment to communication centers, her colleagues at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG), and students.

Among her many contributions, Kim has hosted and planned the NACC conference twice, a major commitment of time and energy. This year, Kim volunteered to host and plan the spring conference for a third time. She has participated in all but two communication center conferences. In addition, she is ending a second term as Student Advocate after spending the last two years coordinating revisions to our outstanding tutor award.  Kim generates much scholarship in major national and regional venues. She also maintains a web presence and archive for the communication center community.

Kim supported the design and startup of the Communication Center Journal, our national peer-reviewed journal and now serves as its managing editor. Kim works daily to ensure that manuscripts are moving through review and that authors know where their manuscript is in the process.

Kim advocates for the communication center section of NCA, including recruitment of members. In addition, she nominates for leadership positions in the organization. Her work toward advancing communication centers extends to students as well through her eight years as Student Advocate (2005-13). On this side of her work, she has designed and created two national communication center student paper competitions and co-authored the inaugural Ferguson Award winning paper.
