This Week: SSA 2012 Annual Conference, Group Running Guide Survey, Secular Coalition for America State Chapters
Our annual conference is a just several weeks away! Join us for an awesome lineup of speakers found here! Our conference schedule is also online. Early registration rates ended yesterday. Registration for student members now costs $50 (get free student membership). Housing rates have stayed the same at $54 for a private room and $21 per person for a shared room of 4. We're no longer accepting applications for Leadership Travel Aid but you can still register and make it out in time. Learn more at the conference webpage and join us July 6th!
This is the last week we will be taking t-shirt orders so order your t-shirt by June 24th (shirt orders are made during registration).
We are updating our Group Running Guide for the new generation of students. It's the fourth edition! A lot of student leaders lent their support by completing a Group Running Guide Survey last week but we could still use your help! We need current and former student group leaders to offer us advice on what to include in the new Group Running Guide to help keep the guide updated. If you could give us a small part of your day to fill out the survey (it takes 10 minutes or so) you'll be helping the SSA and secular students everywhere! Also, please pass the survey along to other group leaders in your network. We want to get as many suggestions as possible.
The Secular Coalition for America, one of our partnering organizations, is expanding to the state level. In an effort to combat egregious violation of church & state at the non-federal level, (and since there are so many) the SCA has launched state chapters. The mission of the Secular Coalition for America is to increase the visibility of and respect for non-theistic viewpoints in the United States, and to protect and strengthen the secular character of our government as the best guarantee of freedom for all.
