This Week: Group Running Guide Cover, Humanist Researcher, How to Interact With Theists
Is your group active in the summer? Do you want to be on the SSA's new Group Running Guide 2012 edition cover? We need your group photos! Get creative and have fun with it! One idea we came up with is a group photo with all the members of the group literally running. But you can also simply send us any and all the photos of your group where you will be imortalized in our publication.
All Group Running Guide photo inquiries should go to our design intern Ellen.

To apply email Luis Granados a brief summary of why this project is something of interest and demonstrate the reasons you can complete this project. The research needs to be complete by November (or earlier). This position is not paid per hour but the researcher will be credited and paid a percentage of profits from the book depending on the amount of work. For more information about this opportunity go to our jobs page.
Many SSA affiliates often encounter theists at their group's meetings and events. Some groups encourage such attendance and some don't. Often, theists who attend regularly can help make discussions more interesting and lively; however there are a few ways they can negatively impact the group. There are several different ways your group can handle theists in positive or negative ways. We created this article as a resource for our affiliates to use as a go to on how to interact with theists.
