Each new chapter needs to have a local contact who can communicate with our staff.
The local contact is a member of CSCA, who:
- is responsive to emails from:
- ASA’s Local Chapter Coordinator, Dana Oleskiewicz <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
- Your chapter’s CSCA Executive Council Liaison (see below), and
- CSCA’s Digital Media & Communications Specialist, Mark McEwan <email@example.com>.
- maintains contact with other key figures in the chapter
- works with others to plan events, invites speakers
- reports expenses, requesting reimbursement (via receipts) from our Treasurer <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
- understands the limitations of resources.
The following are also assets:
- social media presence
- access to suitable rooms (hopefully at no charge) to hold events
- encouraging people to join and donate to CSCA.
See our event co-sponsorship policy.
This is what the CSCA can do for you:
- Each local chapter is put in touch with a member of our Executive Council (EC), who serves as Liaison between the chapter and the EC. Your EC Liaison is there to provide guidance and advice, and they represent the concerns of your chapter at periodic EC meetings. They may also be available to visit your chapter at some point, especially if your chapter invites them to speak at an event.
- Each local chapter may request up to $500 per year from our national fund.
- This can be supplemented by donations. (Remember: all donations to CSCA are tax-receiptable.)
- Information/guidance on how to hold a local event
- Preparation of event pages on CSCA’s Facebook and websites.
- Mark may also be able to help with promotional posters, etc.
