We have been unable to register people for the conference since last Wednesday due to a technical problem with the company that processes credit card payments for the Society. Since we cannot obtain a firm commitment as to when this company will take us back online, we are changing to another service provider. We are running the tests on the new system now and plan to be back in business shortly - we will announce here and on the listserv when we are accepting payments. We apologize for the inconvenience and will extend early bird registration until April 12 to thank you for your patience.
Dear SSSR membership,
This is to inform you about the fact that Sara Hart from Florida Center for Reading Research who was nominated by our SSSR Awards Committee has won a 2019 Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences (FABBS) Early Career Impact Award. FABBS is the coalition of scientific societies focused specifically on promoting the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior in the U.S. with SSSR is one of its members, supporting our advocacy and educational activities before the U.S Congress and federal science agencies. The award was presented to Dr. Hart in recognition of her major research contributions to the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior.
On behalf of the membership I heartily congratulate Dr. Hart on this award. The Award Certificate will be handed to her at our next Annual Meeting in Toronto.
Best wishes for the holidays and a happy 2019!
We would like to welcome Jessie Ricketts and Tiffany Hogan as the new boards members effective January 1, 2019.
