Dates for the 2014 Annual Meeting Announced
As you may know, our conference will coincide with the Southern Sociological Society’s (SSS) conference scheduled for April 2nd to April 5th. The Executive Council and I thought it would be a great idea to partner with SSS since they will be in North Carolina. The SSS Executive Committee has agreed to work with us to provide an excellent venue and to promote some membership benefits associated with attending both conferences (more on this later).
So, please mark your calendars for what will be a great opportunity for all North Carolina sociologists to come and discuss their profession. Of course, more details about the theme of our conference, as well as registration and submission deadlines will come shortly. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks and I hope you all have a great rest of the summer!
