Annual Meeting Sign-Up


Sign-up for the annual meeting is now open on the CS4 website. The CS4 Executive Committee met with Brenda Luper (NCSS Director of Finance) and Susan Griffin (Executive Director, NCSS) following our meeting in DC in 2011. During the course of this conversation, the CS4 Executive Board realized that CS4 has been out of compliance with NCSS policies in several areas. After multiple discussions, and in order to be in compliance with NCSS policy, we have agreed upon the following NEW process for signing up for the annual meeting. In addition, it is necessary for all CS4 members to pay for a one-day registration for the NCSS conference in order to attend the CS4 annual meeting.

Instructions for annual meeting sign-up:


All members of CS4 must register for the NCSS Conference PRIOR to signing-up for the annual CS4 meeting. When registering for the national conference, select the one-day registration fee (if you are planning on attending the CS4 meeting ONLY; other wise, if you are planning on staying for the NCSS conference, then select the full conference option) which will cover your attendance at the annual meeting on Wednesday and Thursday.

  • In order to attend the annual meeting, you must hold concurrent memberships with NCSS and CS4.
  • Register for the NCSS Conference: http://www.socialstudies.org/conference
  • You will need your NCSS confirmation # to sign up for the annual meeting.
  • NO money will be collected on-site at the meeting! You should pay your CS4 membership dues either when you renew your NCSS membership or when you register for the NCSS conference.
