Please consider supporting SSCA in these ways:

  • A listing on the SSCA website at http://www.ssca.net/institutional-members
  • Opportunity to post job announcements on the SSCA website
  • Complimentary one-year student membership ($30 value)  
  • Listed as an institutional member in our podcast

Get some PR for your department, post that open faculty position, and invite a student to get involved—it’s a win-win for everyone!

2. Advertise in the Convention Program:  Rates begin at only $225 – less than most other comparable association rates.  It’s a great way to:

  • Promote your department
  • Recognize a colleague
  • Advertise your graduate program to the undergraduate participants

3. Participate as a Convention Exhibitor: It is a great way to showcase your institution or organization and to network face-to-face with attendees and colleagues.

Caring Connections 

Caring Connections is a dual purpose fund raiser. First, Caring Connections purchases help fund the Association's awards.  Second, Caring Connections provides a way for you to thank those friends and colleagues you have worked with during the last year. 

Caring Connections consist of a printed card telling the honoree that a donation has been made to SSCA's Awards in their honor and a small fabric appliqué. Recipients wear the appliqué on their nametags at the SSCA convention
