SSA Annual Conference Success!
We conclude our Annual Conference this week. Again, we could not have done it without the help of all the volunteers, speakers, members and supporters and most of all the students! We had over 250 attendees at the conference in Columbus making our attendance grand total this year almost 400!
We still have a few Columbus and Vegas conference shirts available for purchase. Simply log onto our store or email us and we'll be happy to work with you.
FBB Fall Internships
Foundation Beyond Belief is looking for 3-5 fall volunteer positions from August 7th to January 21, 2014. The time commitment is an average of 8 hours a week and all work is done remotely.
Experience in the nonprofit sector is a plus, as is experience in grant writing or other development capacities. Although interns will do work in several areas of Foundation operations, each internship includes a primary focus area, special project, and cause area vetting assignment.
This opportunity is an excellent way for students to get their foot in the door of the secular movement! View a detailed description of the internship here, testimonials from former FBB interns here and finally apply here. The application is due July 20th. For more job and internship opportunities in the movement, check out our jobs page.

The event is being held in Madison Wisconsin from August 1-5.
The organizers of the NSPC are looking for interested students to attend. Registration, food and housing is free. Just sign up and get there by August 1st.

Brian Dalton, better known as Mr. Deity, stars in a show on Youtube
of the same name. A former Mormon, Mr. Diety uses the show in order to make people think about what they really believe. He promotes the idea that in order to determine what is good, right, and true, we must use reason, inquiry, and wisdom; whereas Western religion is institutionally at war with not only those concepts but virtually all the great ideas and values which have inspired and informed the great democracies of the West (human rights, liberty, equality, tolerance, justice, knowledge, science, and due process).
Brian charges an honorarium in the range of $750 to $1,000. The prices are negotiable.Learn More
