Hi there SSDP rockstars!
As we start the new year, we’re proud to bring to you the first ever SSDP chapter leaders newsletter. From now on each month, we’ll send out a message like this that includes recent blog posts, new resources, upcoming events (online and offline), and other items of interest to SSDPers such as yourself. The idea is to keep you in the loop on what we’re up to in our national headquarters in Washington, DC, what we’ve got in the works, and to help you stay connected to the national staff and to other SSDPers. If you’ve got any ideas or suggestions for things to include in these newsletter, please let us know!
