Description About the MSS:
Founded in 1936, MSS is a membership organization of academic and applied sociologists as well as students of the discipline. About 2/3 of the 1300 members live in the Midwest, but membership is open to all; and about 1/3 of the members are from other parts of the nation and the world.

Organized in 1936, MSS held its first annual meeting in 1937. In 2011-12, MSS celebrated 75 years of scholarship and collegiality at our annual meetings in St. Louis and Minneapolis.

What We Do:
- Publish The Sociological Quarterly;
- Hold a four-day annual meeting each spring;
- Provide opportunities for leadership and committee work;
- Support a minority fellowship, several grant and award programs, and research by MSS members.

With the adoption of a long-range strategic plan, MSS is moving forward intentionally, to meet the challenges of the future.

We invite you to join us!
