A comprehensive new manual for launching and running a local secular humanist group has now been published by the Council for Secular Humanism. "Running a Secular Humanist Group" is a 117-page manual that covers everything someone could need to know if they’re thinking of starting a local group in their community—or if they’re involved in operating a group of long standing.
Chapters cover starting a new group, preparing programs, types of meetings, procedures for publicizing meetings, online and offline communications, group governance, and fundraising. Some 74 pages of appendices provide examples of successful "best practices" among existing groups. The manual fills a stout three-ring binder the pockets of which are stuffed with informative brochures from the Council for Secular Humanism.
The manual is being shipped to the 67 local groups attached to the Council’s Affiliated Local Groups Program (ALGP) (view a list of groups) and is available upon request to any new or existing group that applies to join the ALGP.
"Running a Secular Humanist Group" is a wholly-new edition of a local groups manual that has been offered by the Council for Secular Humanism since 1997.
