Salvete, SCLers! I’m here waiting in the airport for my connection to Fargo, so I thought I’d connect you to the latest SCinteL.
This year your NSCL board has created The Friendly Handbook of NSCL (alternatively titled The Iron Fistbook of NSCL). This will offer as a guide for new and established SCL chapters to write a constitution, run events for JCLers, and carry out their duties as officers. This handbook also includes the important addition of the NSCL Code of Conduct. While this Code of Conduct utilizes the same verbiage as the NJCL Code of Conduct which is applicable at convention, the NSCL Code of Conduct is applicable year round in any situation involving two SCLers. This protects SCL 24/7 365!
Another change you might see more directly at convention is signing in for SCL GAs! Woooo! Members who have paid their dues will be able to sign in on a physical sheet of paper. These sheets will be updated each day as new members register and should expedite SCL GA sign in.
Also, to recognize the hard work of our SCLers, instead of Queen of the Day or Allstar of the Day, in honor of the convention theme “bees are not of a solitary nature” (which all SCLers definitely know every year)- we will award Bees of the day! Perhaps you could be a bumblebee, carpenter bee, queen bee, yellow jacket, B rated bee, and more!
Now you’re in the know about SCL. Can’t wait for you all to see these changes in person in Fargo!
Your Big P,
I’ve been busy SCLers! These past few weeks I’ve been putting together the final bits and pieces to the handbook, creating the first Ear, and publishing the last LOL! I also helped judge the Publications, and I have to say they all look spectacular. Even though they aren’t SCL, give the JCL newsletters a look through. It’s so cool to see everything they’re up to throughout the year.
With convention approaching at WARP SPEED, I wanted to promote a few things and discuss a little of what I’ll be up to there. First thing’s first though, if you’re looking to be involved in the Ear — or have a great idea for an article — message me or @me in the NSCL FB group. I’ll respond, and we can work something out!
At convention, you’ll find me either
a) doing my adult duties as a zombie, or
b) working on ears, or
In either case, I’ll be accessible to chat about the Ear. Give it a read through at meals too (pls).
I hope you’re all excited! I know I am — especially since it’ll be my first year as a FULL TIME SCLer! I am a bit nervous though, since again, first year as an SCLer.
Drop me a line though, and let’s connect! I’m looking forward to seeing you all there.
