Below is an update on the status of the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2015, H.R. 1806. As you may know, the legislation sets arbitrary funding levels and contains a near 50% cut to the National Science Foundation's Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences Directorate - effectively eliminating large portions of funding for social and personality psychologists, among other social scientists.  
In conjunction with the Association for Psychologyical Science (APS), SPSP invites you to a reception at APS's 27th Annual Convention. The reception will occur on Friday, May 22 from 4:00 p.m. through 6:00 p.m. in the Manhattan Ballroom, located on the 8th floor of the New York Mariott Marquis. You'll have a chance to meet other social and personality psychologists attending the conference over a drink and snacks. Students are also welcome to attend. 
The following candidates will appear on the 2015 SPSP Leadership Ballot. Ballots will be mailed to voting members the week of April 27.

SPSP would like to provide you an update on H.R. 1806, the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2015. Recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, the legislation in current form contains strong implications for the social and behavioral sciences. Particularly, the bill reallocates the National Science Foundation's research dollars away from the social and behavioral sciences and toward the natural sciences and engineering. The legislation contains $140 million less than President Obama requested for the social and behavioral sciences.
