The 2017 annual conference of Mississippi Political Science Association (MSPSA) was held at the JSU downtown campus, Feb. 10-11, 2017.

Over fifty faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students across the State of Mississippi and from Georgia and Texas joined the event. The conference has served an academic event to discuss the current political and policies issues at state, and natural scales. Also, the former Secretary of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture gave a presentation on 'Democracy and the 2016 US Presentation Election,' and followed by a panel discussion. Angela Cockerham - Chair of Energy Committee, Mississippi House of Representative - gave a presentation on 'Major policy agendas for the 2017 Mississippi legislative session.'

Further, the board meeting has elected the new board officers serving for 2017-2018.
