Announcements and Advertising

Announcements of events and resources must be timely: it must be likely that NCSS members will receive an issue in advance of the dates listed in your announcement. Some issues appear "late" in the month due to necessary delays: Jan/Feb due to late incoming reports from the Annual Conference, and May/June due to Board of Director Election results.

See TSSP Guidelines for more information.

The NCSS Career Center, with information for job seekers and recruiters, is at (TSSP does not include position announcements.)
