"The Georgia Sociological Association is an organization of academic and applied professional sociologists and students (whose) objectives are to stimulate and improve research, teaching, and discussion and to encourage community service and cooperative relations among persons in the State of Georgia engaged in the scientific study of society and culture. A meeting of sociologists and anthropologists met on November 20, 1964. This gathering resulted in the establishment of the Georgia Sociological and Anthropological Association (GSAA). John Doby (Emory University) was elected President; Tilman Cothran (Atlanta University), Vice-President; and Raymond Payne (University of Georgia), Secretary-Treasurer. It was during the 1975 annual meeting of the GSAA, in Statesboro, when a name change was ratified and the Association became the Georgia Sociological Association."
