Dear SBN Community,
We want to make sure the initiatives of SBN are affordably accessible to one and all. The current SBN operating budget includes outreach initiatives, scholarships, program development, technological infrastructure, and legal filings. We are relying on many sources--including membership, gifts, grants, corporate contributions--to meet these expenses. As noted Membership is critical among them. Does SBN hope individuals will pay as generously as they can? Of course! Without your generosity, we might never expand to produce the collaborative initiatives and engaging public education programs we have in store.
We are truly proud of our commitment to both scholarship and accessibility. We know we can count on your support--as Members and friends, and as people who understand the importance of Black neuropsychology to the scientific community and the public. After much discussion with our Advisory and Executive Board, we have moved membership fees to a suggestion donation. In this way, individuals who are unable to afford membership will still be able to partake of the future opportunities and those who want to support on a financial level can feel free to write in the amount they would like to give. We hope that in the coming months you find much value out of your membership and out of being a part of the community of SBN!
