Develop Your Leadership Skills!

It’s time to start getting ready for our Leadership Development Institute (LDI)!

Holiday Resources

December 11, 2018

We are in the final stretch of our 2018 Social Equity Campaign through the Community Investment Tax Credit program. We still have 2018 tax credits to distribute, so if you are able to donate $1000 or more, you'll be able to get a 50% credit against your tax liability, or a refund for that amount if you don't have a tax liability.  Just make sure to make your donation by  December 31st, 2018 to get the 2018 tax credit. We'll be here to greet you at the office, or you can send by mail.  It's like a holiday every day as donations come in!

SCC Adopts its 5 Year Strategic Plan

SCC Adopts its 5 Year Strategic Plan

December 11, 2018

In late September, the SCC Board of Directors adopted a new 5-year strategic plan for SCC’s work to cover the years 2019-2023. This reflects a year of work in various committees, task forces, and communication with stakeholders. Meant to be a “living document” rather than a plan that gathers dust on the shelf, SCC’s strategic plan charts a bold vision for the next 5 years – not really a departure, but rather building on our work of the last several years.
