We here at the Secular Student Alliance are thrilled to announce location details of our 2016 Annual Conference, and wanted to be sure to invite you to join us! Next year, we are expanding our conference to FOUR (that's right, four!) locations.
Starting May 27-29, you can check out our SSA West conference in King's Landing, Westeros. June 10-12, SSA East will be in Mordor. We want to make it easier for everyone to attend, so we have added two additional locations: Northern students can check out SSA North July 22-24 on the moon at Moonbase Alpha and our students of the merpeople persuasion can join us at SSA South in Atlantis from August 12-14!
All of our conferences are equally awesome, and we hope to have as many students as possible. Registration is only $39 for student members of the SSA! Registration rates will go up on May 16, though, so register soon to take advantage of this low rate.
Our topics and training sessions are applicable to student activists across the board, whether or not you’re involved with a secular group. This year’s schedule also includes hands-on workshops on topics like finding service projects or being a political activist for secular causes. You’ll also be able to meet SSA staff and see what projects and ideas are coming down the pipeline.
In addition, you will be able to mingle and network with students from across the solar system, great speakers, and movement leaders! This is your chance to really see what’s going on in the movement both locally, nationally, oceanically, in fantasy worlds, and throughout the Milky Way.
Did we mention that you’ll have a great time? Students who have attended our conference rave about the experience - often for years afterwards! You won’t find a more exciting way to spend a weekend.
Leadership Travel Aid is still available for students who need help with travel (as One Does Not Simply Walk Into Mordor) or lodging costs, though it is on a first-come, first-serve basis – so get your application in soon!
Remember, your registration is just $39 for a weekend full of great speakers, great people, and great fun. Register for the West here, East here, North here, and South here. For more information about all our conferences, visit our conference home page.
