Welcome to everyone who's new to this list! We hope that these weekly emails are helpful about letting you know more about what the SSA national does, how we help groups, and what's going on in the secular movement.
This week, we're launching our once-per-semester Affiliation Renewal to make sure our records are up to date. We also have a change to our annual conference plans for 2012 (mark your calendars!) and an update on our webinars. Check it out!
Fall 2011 Affiliation Renewal Starting Now!
Fact #1: The Campus Organizing Team here at the SSA needs to keep updated records on all our groups.
Fact #2: We cannot do this without your help, since you have the info we crave. That's why twice per year we ask that somebody in your group takes a paltry fifteen minutes out of their day to fill out the Affiliation Renewal form.
If your group does not do this by the assigned date, then that means it becomes the job of Nick, Andy, Lyz and JT to track you down.
Emailing you, calling you, throwing on our black fatigues, replacing the batteries in the night-vision goggles, and firing up the SSA super jet to come nag you to fill out your affiliation renewal is a time-consuming process that takes away from our other duties! Please do not let it come to this. It means that we're doing this instead of creating business cards, coordinating speakers, providing project grants, and all the other great stuff we do!
You should have received an email instructing you how to complete the affiliation renewal. If you didn't, just click here

Date Change for the SSA 2012 Annual Conference
We have changed the dates of the 2012 SSA Leadership Conference. They will now be July 6-8, same bad station, same bad channel. Do not bring leftover fireworks*.
We've already begun work on the conference, tracking down celebrity thinkers and what not, so be sure to mark the new dates on your calendar. You won't want to miss it!
* ...unless they're really stinkin' cool!
