Society Street brings together leaders and future leaders of learned societies and associations to provide a forum to explore the challenges facing these organizations.
Originally conceived as a conference, Society Street’s mission is to provide a venue for discussion, debate, networking, and information exchange, uniquely focussed on the whole organization. We aim to address together the strategic questions facing societies around publishing, conferences, membership, outreach and governance – and look at them as part of a joined-up whole.
Our goal is to ultimately provide support to strengthen society leadership, and in turn, strengthen learned societies. We firmly believe that societies are an important part of the research ecosystem, and provide support and advocacy for research, researchers and practitioners in the important work they do in – ultimately – making the world a better place.
