Membership is drawn from the public, private and academic sectors. We welcome members, attendees, participants, and students from around the world.

The GPSA Vice President organizes the preliminary program from the accepted proposals and will post it as soon as possible after the submission deadline: July 21, 2006. Panels and roundtables are assembled from the accepted proposals and individual papers. Six to seven sessions of four concurrent panels each are spread over two days. Three to five presentations are assigned to each panel.

The last annual meeting attracted 160 participants from Georgia, 10 other U.S. states, and overseas. Although political scientists are in the majority, the conference is definitely interdisciplinary. Since 1968, participants have included political scientists, historians, economists, humanists, sociologists, criminologists, anthropologists, public administrators, philosophers, students, interested non-academics and many others.

The Criminal Justice Association of Georgia meets jointly with the GPSA.

About thirty percent of the presentations adhere to the conference theme. If you have a proposal that fits the theme (or not), please submit it. The GPSA will give your proposal fair and careful consideration.

Whether you wish to make a presentation or to simply attend the conference, you are most welcome. Please submit the registration form. Please note that the GPSA must receive a panel participant's registration form and fees by October 20, 2006 or the participant will be dropped from the program.

The McBrayer Award and an accompanying $500.00 cash prize will be awarded in years when a paper of outstanding scholarship within the discipline is presented in its entirety on the GPSA annual meeting program and subsequently recognized as such at the discretion of the Editorial Board and Editor-in-Chief of the Proceedings of the GPSA by their decision to bestow the McBrayer Award.

Please note that each attendee is responsible for all of his expenses related to the conference. The GPSA does not fund attendees.

The only invitation that the GPSA issues for groups, individuals or other entities is the general Call for Presentations and the Conference Registration Form posted on this web site. It is the sole responsibility of attendees or participants to make their own travel arrangements and meet all governmental requirements to attend our conference.
