Interest Groups, Caucuses and Sections

CSCA conducts its business and sponsors convention programs and panels through the 27 Interest Groups, Caucuses, and Sections representing the different discipline emphases of the membership. Members may specify affiliation with as many Interest Groups, Caucuses, and Sections as they choose as part of their membership.

Beginning in April 2006, the recipients of the Top Papers or Top Panels from each Interest Group, Caucus, and Section have been awarded a certificate. The certificates are awarded during the respective Interest Group, Caucus, or Section business meeting.

Each Interest Group, Caucus, and Section receives a yearly stipend of $100.00. This stipend is available to the Interest Group, Caucus, or Section any time during the fiscal year. The stipend does not roll over to the next fiscal year if unspent.

If an Interest Group, Caucus, or Section is able to raise money on its own, that money can be placed in an Endowment Fund managed by the Executive Director. The minimum amount required to start an endowment fund is $1000.00, $100.00 of that may be the stipend for the year. Then, in addition to the budgeted $100.00 each subsequent year, the Interest Group, Caucus, or Section can use the income generated by the interest on their endowment at their discretion.
