Register for the Annual Meeting

The SSSP Annual Meeting is a great time to make meaningful connections.  SSSP is large enough to have a significant number of scholars with whom you will want to engage but also small enough to have ample opportunities to converse, arrange lunches, meet together after presentations, have follow-up e-mail exchanges, and otherwise connect with other presenters.  We hear of conference participants every year who met at the annual meeting and have an ongoing friendship for years to come.  In sum, don’t overlook the important benefit of making meaningful connections when you participate at the SSSP Annual Meeting.  Click here to register:
