I heard you like getting paid for doing what you're passionate about. Well, the atheist movement is growing.
That means more and more people are about to start getting paid to advance the cause of secularism. People like you. So we got you these jobs. The SSA is hiring a couple of interns for the Summer and hiring a full-time regional coordinator.
Also, we're smack dab in the middle of Black History month, which means it's time for Day of Solidarity. It will be this coming Sunday, February 26. There's still time to scramble up an event and the SSA is willing to help.
Lastly, one of the biggest problems facing groups is how to find an advisor. Worry not! Group starting specialist Andy Cheadle has taken a break from training to be the Ultimate Fighting Champion to fill you in on how to conquer that problem.
This semester is off to a positively roaring start. We have new groups affiliating every day! It is so much freaking fun to be in this movement right now with all of you guys. Keep up the good work.
SSA's job's page is bustling with new opportunities for non-theists ready to build a career in the movement. We are hiring two paid interns for the summer! One internship is writing and the other is a design internship. If you are graduating this year, check our 2012 intern page to see if you have what it takes to be a part of the team! We are also hiring a Regional Campus Organizer to provide more direct campus organizing asistance to SSA affiliate groups focusing on specific areas. Check out more information at the RCO page. Good luck!

I felt that an effort should be given to assemble black non-believers in our local towns and cities eliminating the need for expensive travel. I visualized a special day of observance ... to promote fellowship, share experiences, meet new non-believers, and discuss the lives of black non-believers that our typical history books omit... - Donald Wright"
Choosing an Advisor
The following article was written by Andy Cheadle.
A few weeks ago I discussed how to find a focus area for your group. I hope that you’ve all taken that seriously and at least had a discussion about what your group’s goals should be for this year. Even this quarter/semester would be a good start! When finding a faculty adviser, this conversation is important. Each group will need and want something different out of their adviser. Where one group might expect their adviser to attend weekly meetings and events, another group may only want their adviser to show up for required or important functions. These decisions are best left up to you and your individual members....
