The LSA Annual Meeting, held the first week of every January in a major U.S. city, is the premier gathering of linguistics professionals and students from throughout the profession and around the world.  It is an unparalleled opportunity to share research, network, and socialize with your colleagues from academia, industry, and government.  The Annual Meeting includes a number of activities geared to professional development for linguists at all stages of their careers and contains many programs and events of interest to students, who make up one-third of attendees.

The LSA works to keep the Annual Meeting affordable for as many as possible.  We have consistently negotiated unprecedentedly low hotel room rates at major hotels  Our meeting registration rates, which allow complete access to all activities, are among the best bargains in the field.  We offer assistance with childcare (up to $100) to LSA members who present their research at the meeting.
