The Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) is pleased to introduce CSSP Office Hours. This opportunity for CSSP member societies will be held once a month, beginning Wednesday, February 9th at 2:00 pm EST.

The role of the president of a scientific society differs from the one of a scientist and member of a scientific society. One of the primary benefits of being a CSSP member is networking with other science society leaders. This affords many opportunities for informal interactions and the chance to learn how other science societies and presidents have successfully made this transition. During in-person meetings there are informal interactions that allow time to ask for advice from more experienced science society leaders. Because of COVID, CSSP and many other science society meetings have become virtual – but there is still a need to develop a network, particularly since being a president during a pandemic has made the role significantly harder.

To help meet this challenge CSSP will start offering virtual “office hours” once a month. During this time two CSSP board members will be available to facilitate discussion of issues, answer questions and provide advice. This will be an informal interaction between all participants. For our inaugural session we are honored that Board members Sharon Mosher and Jennifer Tank will facilitate the conversation on Wednesday, February 9th. We suggest you review their bio before the office hour so you will know something about them.

We also invite you to watch a video that each facilitator (Dr. Mosher and Dr. Tank) has made about the value of CSSP.
