A new look for CSSP

Hello CSSP Members,

If you’ve visited the CSSP website recently you may have noticed our new look as well as the improved organization and navigation tools that have been added.

Along with the new look come some administrative changes that have also happened. In order to login, you will first need to set up your password for our updated website. Click here to add your password. Once updated, you can login here.

While you are logged in, please take a moment to complete your profile. Your profile details will be searchable to help people find you. (Don’t worry, this feature is only available to members when logged in.) We’re still working on fine-tuning some small details, but we’re pleased with the look and excited with the new website. We hope you will be, too.

Along with the switch to our new website you’ll see the confirmed details for the Spring Leadership Workshop that are well underway. Registration is now open for the event, scheduled for May 2 – 5, 2020. Register by April 10, 2020 in order to save with early-bird rates.

We work hard to ensure that all our speakers and panelists are engaged to share their knowledge and experiences around topics we have heard are of interest to you. The focus on presentations around Society Best Practices, an area where we frequently hear that past presidents who have sat in your seat, or walked in your shoes are interesting in hearing about, continues to grow. We have learned that this is an area that will assist in adding value to the strength of your individual presidency, which is something with which we strive to be supportive.

If this will be your first CSSP Workshop, please schedule time to arrive for the Saturday morning Primer, a chance to have an open discussion to address areas that concern you, and learn from returning member Presidents who are ready to share their experiences with you.

Each time we gather we are excited to hear about what each unique society has been working on and to network across the many different scientific disciplines within CSSP.

CSSP has also secured favorable hotel rates at the Mayflower Hotel, located at 1127 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20036.

We look forward to seeing your name on the growing list of attendees for May 2 – 5, 2020.
