Related Groups

Professional groups engaged in the study of political science are invited and encouraged to participate in Annual Meetings as "related groups." These groups are included in the meeting to promote teaching and research in political science or the professional development of political scientists. Related groups add diversity and offer a broad spectrum of civic and political issues and may sponsor panels and roundtables at the Annual Meeting. If you’d like to learn more on how to become a related group, contact [email protected]

Panel Allocations

  • Each Related Group receives one panel at the annual meeting, and may receive more based on attendance.
  • Total Related Group panel allocations are calculated based on Related Group panel attendance as a percentage of total panel attendance and are capped at 15% of total available panels. In recent years total Related Group panel allocations have averaged around 9% of total available panels.
