This Week: Group Promotion, Become a Member, and Delegation

Don't Stop Promoting!

Item

The school year being in full swing isn't a reason to stop promoting and advertising for your group!

Promotion is the key to a functioning group. Without proper promotion, groups fail to recruit new members and keep current ones interested, and simply fade away (it's really depressing).

Ask a Friend to Become a Member!

Do you have a friend, classmate, family member, etc. who might be interested in becoming a member of SSA National?

Let them know that anyone can become a member, and it's free for students! Support from dedicated individuals like you makes the work we do possible.

Tip from the Campus Organizing Team

Lyz says . . . delegate tasks to other leaders and members or you'll burn out!

Delegation can be hard, frustrating, time-consuming and uncomfortable. But it also helps you get more done in the long run, stay less stressed, develop new leaders and a broad volunteer base, and build sustainability for your group.

9/11 Day of Service Reflection

Item

This resource is intended to help groups look back on their accomplishments and process the event's meaning for their development as a human being and its influence on their secular identity. Heavy stuff, right? Don't worry - we've made it easy for you!

The 9/11 Day of Service Reflection Guide was created to guide you through the process.

Banned Books Week

Item

The origins of Banned Books Week goes all the way back to 1982 when it was first launched in response to a growing number of book censorship cases.

Typically held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week celebrates literature that has been censored at some point in time, or is presently being challenged.

Tip from the Campus Organizing Team

Jessika says . . . don't clutter your table!

Having too much stuff on your table makes it difficult to choose what's important.

Keep your table organized and clean. Choose only the most relevant items to display.

Brand New Group Running Guides

Item

While you were hanging out on the beach all summer (that's what you did, right?) the SSA summer interns created new and improved Group Running Guides!

They're not printed yet, but they are pretty awesome. You can pre-order a copy so you'll be one of the first to use the new guides.

Tip from the Campus Organizing Team

Nick says . . . When you send group emails, use the BCC field.

"Blind Carbon Copy" means that each recipient is unable to see the other BCC recipients - so you're not sharing everyone's information with everyone else, and mobile devices don't have a pile of email addresses to scroll past. Item
