It gives me great pleasure to announce that Lyz Liddell will be joining our staff as senior campus organizer. Lyz has been volunteering as the Editor-in-Chief for the Secular Student Alliance's eMpirical for over two years--so she should already be very familiar to most of you.

One of the most important things the SSA does for its affiliates is provide those student groups with services and resources. You can always find these listed at our Group Services
page. We've been adding and revising those resources over the summer and are excited to bring them to your attention!

As an officer for the Harvard Secular Society, I had the opportunity in June to attend a major humanist conference in Washington, DC, thanks to some generous funding from the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard and the Secular Student Alliance (SSA).
This conference was held jointly by the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), the American Humanist Association (AHA), and the SSA. The IHEU is an organization that includes Humanist, rationalist, secular, atheist, and other non-theist groups from all over the world. The AHA is a domestic organization that aims to promote the ideals of humanism, and the SSA seeks to mobilize young people to become activists for secular causes. The other Harvard attendees were Kelly Bodwin, an undergraduate; Jon Figdor and Sebastian Velez, graduate students; and Greg Epstein, the Humanist chaplain.

The SSA is growing faster than ever! Since the beginning of April, we've gained seventeen new affiliate groups and now have a total of 151 affiliate groups
. We had only 90 groups as we headed into fall of 2007-the secular student movement really seems to be coming into its own. Let's welcome our new members!
