  1. Section Elections

    Each year, section members elect more than 200 leaders from a slate of more than 550 candidates. Section elections are conducted simultaneously with ASA-wide elections. Sections work with the ASA Office to coordinate its election. All sections must meet association-wide deadlines or conduct separate balloting at its own expense. Unless stated otherwise in the section bylaws, an election must be conducted each year and each open position should be competitive (having at least two candidates for each open position).

  8. Teaching and Learning in Sociology Symposium

    ASA invites submissions for the Annual Meeting symposium on the practice of teaching and learning in sociology. This symposium was established by ASA Council in response to the recommendations of the Task Force on Community College Faculty in Sociology and was inaugurated in 2018. Symposium submissions consist of an extended abstract, rather than a full research paper. This creates new pathways to engage a broader array of sociologists in discussions of teaching and learning in the discipline.
