Graveyard of the Gods

Item

Graveyard of the Gods is a farewell to all the long forgotten deities. It is an opportunity to demonstrate that there are thousands upon thousands of gods out there, and most of them are no longer worshipped.

SSA affiliate groups all over the country participate around Halloween. Your group can get involved, too!

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?

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.

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.
