SCA at a Glance
September 2018

Register Now for Our NATCC Workshop!
Greetings members!

We had a great time connecting with many of you over the week at Columbus during this year's ISA Annual Conference. All of our events had great turn-outs, and we were not only able to connect with many of our current members, but met a few new members as well. Welcome, to any newcomers!

Although the dust is settling from ISA, we've got another event happening already! Our 'Professionals Teaching Professionals' series is proud to offer  Understanding and Using the New 2017 ANSI Z133 Standard, a half-day workshop presented by Tim Walsh. Check out more details below!

We hope your seasonal transitions are going smoothly, and we hope to see you at our workshop in Providence!
