SCA Alumni Engagement Week

Opportunity

Date and Time:

Monday, September 23, 2019, 8:00am to Saturday, September 28, 2019, 5:50pm

On September 26 we’re conducting an online “unconference” with alumni sharing insights on topics from green job resources to wildlife research. And to celebrate National Public Lands Day, SCA will host a service project at Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Historical Park in Woodstock, VT with special guest – SCA founder Liz Putnam! In partnership with NEEF-National Public Lands Day, SCA alums are scheduled to host another 30+ events across the country. Here is a list of those happening in the top 10 markets where our alums live plus the registration info for the event at MBRNHP. SCA Alumni Engagement Week is a huge step forward for our program, designed to connect, share, and involve our tens of thousands of alumni. For more on any of this, alums can reach out to me at pmalizia@thesca.org.
