COSSA Annual Meeting and Advocacy Day Attracts Over 100

CSFlynn_20150309_D700_4770_HRMore than 100 social and behavioral scientists from across the country attended the 2015 COSSA Annual Meeting and related events on March 9-10. This week’s meeting featured a new format for the annual event, which included moving of the meeting from the fall when it had historically been held, to the spring in order to align with Congressional calendar. As part of the meeting on March 10, more than 60 COSSA members descended on Capitol Hill for the first-ever Social and Behavioral Science Advocacy Day. Advocates met with 84 different offices in the House and Senate to discuss the value of social science research and the critical role the federal government plays in supporting this research. Check out the next issue of the COSSA Washington Update for summaries of the meeting’s sessions.

A big thanks our Annual Meeting sponsors: American Educational Research Association, American Evaluation Association, American Sociological Association, Midwest Political Science Association, Princeton University, SAGE, and West Virginia University.
