The LSA was pleased to participate in the Consortium of Social Science Association's (COSSA) Annual Science Policy Conference and Advocacy Day, held April 30 - May 1, 2018 in Washington, DC. LSA Executive Director Alyson Reed moderated a panel on Enhancing National Security, which featured LSA member Claudia Brugman (Center for the Advanced Study of Language) as a panelist (pictured on the left in the photo). The conference was also attended by LSA Policy Committee Chair Evan Bradley (Penn State Brandywine), pictured at far right. Dr. Bradley will participate in Congressional office visits organized by COSSA as part of its Social Science Advocacy Day. Ms. Reed (pictured at center) represents the LSA on COSSA's Board of Directors, of which the LSA has been a member since 1981.
