CSSP Sponsorship

As a trusted voice in support of science and the leading resource for scientific society leadership development across all scientific disciplines, the Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) invites you to choose from several unique sponsorship programs. Your sponsorship supports workshops (May and December of each year), monthly Chats, CSSP initiatives, and CSSP as an organization ensuring that all future science leaders understand current issues and challenges which require solutions and policies based on science.

There are several advantages to companies for these sponsorships, in addition to sponsorship recognition.

  • Through workshop attendance — reach leadership of many diverse societies at a single event in order to share the needs of your organization. Scientific discipline breadth is unique to this workshop.
  • Become aware of disruptive technology that may be advantageous to your organization.
  • Raise awareness of your organization’s support of science.
  • Association with science leaders across a very broad spectrum (many major scientific societies are participatory, ranging from American Chemical Society to Soil and Crop Science Society of America in their breadth). Scientific Society Presidents represent more than 100,000 US scientists.

Past sponsors who have participated in workshops have found great value in contacts made and have adjusted their overall program(s) based on ideas captured at the workshop.  

Relationships developed at CSSP have led to major investments in interdisciplinary programs at universities. One example is Raman spectroscopy as a tool in sensors to detect issues in food production systems at Texas A&M.
