CSSP Office Hours with David Baltensperger and Haskell Pitluck-September 2022
Wednesday, September 14, 2022, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
Category: Office Hours

The Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) is pleased to hold CSSP Office Hours. This opportunity, for CSSP member societies, will be held once a month.

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 were held virtually – but a need to develop a network still exists, particularly since being a president during a pandemic has made the role significantly harder.

To help meet this challenge CSSP started 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.

During the August CSSP Office Hours we are honored to have  CSSP past Board Chair David Baltensperger and Haskell M. Pitluck, CSSP's Ethics/Legal Advisor. Dr. Baltensperger has been in a number of leadership roles during his career, both in the science society and university environments. The Hon. Haskell M. Pitluck, (Ret.) is a skilled mediator and arbitrator who garnered his extensive experience from serving as Circuit Judge, State of Illinois, Nineteenth Judicial Circuit, McHenry County for 22 years.
