One Week Left to Renew!
The Spring 2013 Affiliation Renewal is over in a week - you only have until April 1st to renew! Only about one-third of our groups have filled out the renewal so far, which means that a lot of you still need to renew. Don't wait until it's too late!
We need each and every SSA affiliate group to renew, so lend us about 20 minutes to get your affiliation renewed. Groups that don't renew will be have their affiliate status revoked! Learn more, check outstanding groups, read the FAQ, complete the renewal form and more at www.secularstudents.org/renewal.
