The COSSA Annual Meeting brings together representatives from throughout the social and behavioral science community for a day of discussion on federal issues impacting social and behavioral science research. It provides an opportunity for COSSA members to engage directly with leaders of federal science agencies, Congressional staff, and colleagues from other associations and institutions. This year, discussions will highlight the many ways social and behavioral science research serves the national interest. Come be part of the conversation.
CONFIRMED SPEAKERS: So far, we have confirmed speakers from the National Science Foundation, National Institute of Justice, and the National Academy of Sciences, with much more in the works.

COSSA’s 2nd Annual Social and Behavioral Science Advocacy Day will take place on Wednesday, March 16. This event provides COSSA members with an opportunity to meet with their Congressional delegations to discuss the value and importance of social and behavioral science research. Representatives from all COSSA member organizations are encouraged to participate. Training and all materials will be provided to members.
