Greetings, ILINKY Region!
It's affiliation renewal season! I know it drives some of you crazy, but checking in on affiliates is the only way for us to provide the best resources. As always, I am here to help you with your SSA group. Send me an email with any questions, comments, or concerns.
Phone: (614) 441-9588 x 115
Please take a few moments to renew affiliation with the Secular Student Alliance! This form provides us with information about your group, gives you an opportunity to express problems your group is having so we can hep you out, and continues affiliation until spring 2014. If you are unsure if someone already filled it out for your group, check on the outstanding affilation renewals page.
Fill out the application here: secularstudents.org/renewal
If you have any questions please let me know.
No Dinosaurs in Heaven
Many SSA groups like to show movies on campus, but on many campuses there are very strict rules about screening rights. Luckily, all SSA affiliates have access to No Dinosaurs in Heaven, Emmy-winning filmmaker Greta Schiller's new film. It features renowned anthropologist Dr. Euginie Scott of the National Center for Science Education and the NCSE's Grand Canyon Evolution Expedition.
You can borrow the movie from SSA at no cost, complete with public screening rights.
This page on the SSA website has all the details you need:
There are a few upcoming conferences, and SSA can help you get there! Take a gander at these, and if any of them strike your fancy fill out this SSA Funding Finder to see if you can get some travel money to go! Also find out if your student life office provides money for conference expenses.
All of these conferences are free for students!
