IMC and CMM: Finding Common Ground


Our first conference, held in 2011, was IMC and CMM: Finding Common Ground, which featured Coordinated Management of Meaning, developed by W. Barnett Pearce and Vernon E. Cronen, as an entrance into a theoretically-grounded conversation in IMC. Vernon E. Cronen served as our keynote speaker and the first conference was marked by idea-driven conversations as attendees discussed the teaching, research, and practice of IMC while enjoying the culture and history of the city of Wilmington and its coastal location.
