What Is the CSSP?
The Council of Scientific Society Presidents is an organization of presidents, presidents-elect, and recent past presidents of about sixty scientific federations and societies whose combined membership numbers well over 1.4 million scientists and science educators.
Since 1973 CSSP has served as a strong national voice in fostering wise science policy, in support of science and science education, as the premier national science leadership development center, and as a forum for open, substantive exchanges on emerging scientific issues.
Council membership spans the top elected officers from the physical, mathematical and life sciences, and science and mathematics education. The Council is supported by dues and contributions from the supporting societies and annual contributions from Institutional Affiliates.
CSSP provides its members ready access to the top leadership of the research, mathematics, and science and mathematics education structure nationwide and the national prestige, power, and influence which attend its unique position.
CSSP creates, coordinates and co-sponsors seminars, roundtables, symposia and invited conferences which offer continuing opportunities for professional growth and CSSP undertakes projects which have the long-range potential to strengthen the national future and the future success of all its constituent societies, covering such areas as math and science education, ethical, legal and social consequences of new science, information technology, population and environment, public understanding of science, international science, and the enhancement of the leadership of its constituent societies.
