Exhibitor Registration

We invite you to participate as an exhibitor during the 2017 California Council for the Social Studies annual conference. The CCSS conference is your opportunity to meet face-to-face with teachers and decision makers who influence the purchase of textbooks for grades K-12, children’s trade books, curriculum programs, computer software and videos, art and craft materials, travel and study programs, and special services. 


The California Council for the Social Studies is the largest state professional social studies education organization for teachers, administrators, and curriculum specialists in California. With a membership of over 600, CCSS includes professionals at elementary, middle, high, college and university levels spanning the disciplines of history, geography, political science, economics, sociology, anthropology, psychology, as well as the humanities and visual and performing arts.
