Members and friends of the E. E. Cummings Society meet to exchange thoughts and insights at two scholarly conferences each year:

a) the Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, held in late February at the University of Louisville and

b) the American Literature Association conference, held every year in May on the weekend before Memorial Day. In odd years, the conference is held in Boston; in even years, it is usually held on the west coast.
