“The people in the U.S. Congress need social scientists to provide the kind of information required to inform public policy,” said New York Rep. Sherwood “Sherry” Boehlert, the Republican Chair of the U.S. House Committee on Science, and the first of three Members of Congress to speak at ASA’s October 25 Centennial Congressional Reception & Research Exhibit.

he reception was ASA’s latest celebration focused on its centenary, and the event was designed intentionally to both commemorate the historic milestone of ASA’s 100 years of existence and to showcase sociology relevant to federal policy among a unique national leadership audience in the nation’s capital.
