PSA holds its Annual Meeting for four days between mid-March and mid-April each year. Attendance averages 800-1000, about half students (undergraduate and graduate) and half faculty, retired, and applied sociologists as well as others interested in sociology. Undergraduate students can submit proposals to participate in either roundtable or poster sessions; all others can submit proposals to present in regular sessions. There are usually over 2oo sessions each year. The Meeting rotates through areas of the PSA region, so that once every three years it is held in the Northern, Central, and Southern area. PSA strives to keep Meeting attendance affordable, as this is vital to its mission of both supporting sociological research and the development of the next generation of sociologists.
