The Annual Symposium is the highlight of the Academy’s calendar. Convened by one or more Fellows and held over a full day in November , the Annual Symposium is a public forum examining an important issue in the social sciences and/or public policy arena.

The Cunningham Lecture is held immediately after the Academy symposium and is named in honour of Professor Kenneth Stewart Cunningham, Founding President of the Social Science Research Council (precursor to the Academy). The Cunningham Lecture is free and open to the public.

The other annual events, open only to Fellows (or in some cases by invitation) include:

– Presentations by new Fellows.
– Annual gala dinner
– Academy Panel Meetings
– The Annual General Meeting
