Seattle Community Network started as a project of the Seattle Chapter of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility (CPSR). On July 28th, 1995, the Seattle Community Network incorporated as a separate non-profit, the Seattle Community Network Association, or SCNA. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and our commitment is to access to technology and free speech.
SCN.org (the network) continues to be a primary project of SCNA, supporting free email and web site hosting. However, SCNA also supports other projects, including The Computer Giveaway Project and a variety of workshops for novice and experienced users.

The nine elected Board Members serve staggered three year terms. Only SCNA members can vote for the Board of directors. The Board typically meets on the second Thursday of the month. If you wish to observe a Board meeting, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you interested in governance, policy, and finance? These are the primary duties of the Board. More specifically, the duties of a Board of Directors are to: determine organization mission and purpose; provide proper financial oversight and adequate resources; ensure legal and ethical integrity and maintain accountability; ensure effective organizational planning; determine, monitor and strengthen the organization's programs and services; recruit and orient new board members; enhance the organization's public standing; and select, support and assess the chief executive. Still interested? We are seeking Board members with paralegal and fundraising skills. Contact email@example.com for more information.
Are you more interested in the day-to-day work of the organization? Would you prefer to spend your valuable volunteer time working on systems operations and/or making sure that SCN runs smoothly? Investigate joining ExComm. For more information, contact Steve Guest at firstname.lastname@example.org
