The annual conference serves as a major forum to address a broad range of issues and
concerns of state and local employers and State Social Security Administrators, enabling them to communicate efficiently and effectively with
appropriate federal officials about those matters. Among those who can benefit from attending the conference are:
New State Social Security Administrators and/or new staff or other state officials.
Current State Social Security Administrators and staff or other state officials.
State payroll/wage reporting officials and staff.
IRS officials and staff involved with state and local FICA and/or employment tax matters.
SSA officials and staff involved with state and local governments' coverage, benefits, and W-2 reporting matters.
Anyone else interested in discussing and sharing matters of concern and interest to state and
local governmental employers throughout the country.
The NCSSSA annual conference always involves the discussion of topics of current interest and importance to state and federal officials
involved in state and local Social Security/ Medicare and employment tax matters. The specific topics and timing of the sessions vary from year-to-year,
depending on which issues are of the most immediate concern.
Agenda items in the sample program that are marked "Closed Business Session (State Officials Only)" are for any State Social Security
Administrator, state payroll or wage reporting officials, and/or state staff and officials attending the conference, regardless of whether or not it is your first
conference or whether or not you are responsible for Section 218 matters. Please note that all state representatives participating in the Annual conference
should plan on attending the Regional Caucuses, scheduled to begin approximately at 1:00 PM on Sunday.
(Refer to the NCSSSA Regions Map on this web site so you know which
caucus to attend.) The room location for the caucuses will be determined later, but will be posted at the hotel the day of the meeting.
