American Sociological Association

Retirement Groups in Regional Associations

Both the Eastern Sociological Society and the Pacific Sociological Association have active groups for retired members. In April 2014, the Midwest Sociological Society held a roundtable on retirement issues that resulted in recommendations for future sessions and a table at the presidential reception each year. The Southern Sociological Society also hosted a session on retirement in 2014.

Regional meetings provide a way for retirees who cannot easily travel to national meetings to connect.

Regional Associations

Contact persons for those retirement groups are identified.
