Each year at the American Sociological Association (ASA) Meetings, the Sociological Practice and Public Sociology Section (SPPS) endeavors to share our practices and insights with other sociologists through paper sessions, round table discussions, and a variety of workshops. Our members also attend a variety of regional and topical meetings throughout the year.
