Discover the advantages of being a Lead Partner

Submitted by jdekeles on April 10, 2012
Lead Partnership is SCC's most visible and influential role. Lead Partners serve on the Steering Committee for annual terms. (Exception: Lead Partners who join during the formation stage remain on the Steering Committee for two years, after which they may stand for re-election for one-year terms.) 

If you are interested in becoming a Lead Partner, please contact us for more information on the benefits, obligations and fees.  If you want to know more about the Council, watch this video.
