Founded in 1974, holding its first conference in January 1975 at the University of Keele, the American Politics Group is a Political Studies Association sub-group and the major professional organization for researchers and lecturers in the UK whose work concentrates on the government and politics of the USA. Membership is not restricted to the UK, and APG conferences regularly attract the involvement of trans-Atlantic and European colleagues. The Group holds an annual 3-day conference in January of each year, an annual colloquium hosted at the US Embassy in London in November, as well as other events. In recent years APG members have raised money to establish a program of travel awards for UK postgraduate students.
