The California Council for the Social Studies is excited to open our call for proposals
and invitation for exhibitors and sponsors for the 63rd annual conference. We are
excited to host hundreds of presenters who will share their innovative ideas and
instructional strategies that align with this year's theme: Our Voices, Our Stories:
Developing Community and Belonging Across the Social Studies. Our exhibit hall
will also be a dynamic space with more than 60 exhibitors and sponsors sharing
relevant materials that support social studies educators across the state.
We are looking for dynamic and engaging sessions that will challenge our attendees
to think deeply about their practice and the content shared with students. We are
seeking proposals that amplify the voices of historically marginalized communities.

Additionally, we hope sessions increase students’ engagement in civic activism re-
imagining a world that is just and equitable. We want you to ask questions about 
whose histories are included and find ways to include the voices of those that have
been silenced. Students all at all grade levels (TK-12) need more opportunities to
examine and tell their own stories while also learning about their peers. Successful
proposals will highlight the intersection of identities and the interdisciplinary nature
of the social studies. The 2024 CCSS conference will support social studies educators
to work alongside students in building inclusive democratic spaces and narrating
tomorrow’s history.

The California Council for the Social Studies thanks you for your interest in supporting our organization.  Please browse our guide for Exhibitor & Sponsorship opportunities. 

We look forward to your participation at our 2024 Conference.
