This Week: AHA Conference, Speaker's Bureau Funding Cap Raise, & Join SSA's Facebook Leaderspace
The American Humanist Association is having their 71st Conference in New Orleans this year June 7th-10th. New Orleans is awesome and AHA is having their conference in the heart of the city near the French Quarter. We are offering scholarships to members of the SSA to attend! Remember to sign up for a student membership in order to be eligible!
Check the AHA website for more information on the conference including their HUGE list of speakers, their line up of events and possible accommodations with special conference rates. You must book your room by May 14th to receive the special conference rate.
We're are raising Speaker's Bureau funding for next year! The current caps are $300 per event and up to $600 total per group every year. After some numbers crunching and meeting with our board we are planning to raise the Speakers Bureau funding caps to $400 per event and up to $800 per group a year. Hawaii and Alaska groups are exempt from these caps.
The new caps go into effect for any events on or after July 1, 2012. You can start planning now for our awesome list of speakers to come visit your school and kick off your group festivities for next school year.
One of the greatest services we offer is for our affiliates to get in contact with eachother which is why we started our Facebook Leaderspace group. Join today and keep in contact with other SSA affiliate leaders all across the country. This service is a great way to get advice from your peers who have had much of the same experiences as you. This is also a great way to get in touch with other officers from other groups to offer advice as well!
