Join us for “Games for Good” in October!

September 21, 2021 – Join SSP online for our inaugural “Games for Good” event on Tuesday, October 5, 2021. Network and engage with your fellow publishing professionals in some good-natured games while supporting the Generations Fund.

There are two sessions to accommodate your schedule and time zone. Choose one or attend both!

11:00 am-12:30 pm ET – Match wits against your fellow SSP members in a Trivia Battle Royale
4:00 pm-5:30 pm ET – Choose from either an old school game session (Pictionary® & Bingo) or sign-on to help Solve-A-Mystery

This FUN-draiser is open to all (registration is required). We ask that you consider doing a “bit of good” by making a voluntary donation of $10 or more to benefit the Generations Fund when you register. The Generations Fund is our initiative to fund fellowship, mentoring, and diversity, equity, and inclusion programs to ensure a future for our profession that is thriving and diverse.

Prizes, including a chance to win GrubHub® and Starbucks® gift cards, will be awarded to the top 4 trivia players with the highest score, and all the winners from Pictionary®, Bingo, and Solve-a-Mystery!

This event is made possible by our generous New Directions Seminar sponsors. While this event will kick off the New Directions Virtual Seminar, you do not need to register for the seminar to attend.

About the Generations Fund Through the Generations Fund, We are making a commitment, to foster future generations of diverse and robust scholarly communication professionals. Created as an endowment to fund our Fellowship, Mentoring, and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion programs through its annual earnings, the Generations Fund demonstrates the power of philanthropy to effect change.

About the Society for Scholarly Publishing The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP), founded in 1978, is a nonprofit organization formed to promote and advance communication among all sectors of the scholarly publication community through networking, information dissemination, and facilitation of new developments in the field. SSP members represent all aspects of scholarly publishing—including publishers, printers, e-products developers, technical service providers, librarians, and editors. SSP members come from a wide range of large and small commercial and nonprofit organizations. They meet at SSP’s annual meetings, educational seminars, and regional events to hear the latest trends from respected colleagues and discuss common and mutual (and sometimes divergent) goals and viewpoints.
