iSCS launched the community program last October. The concept was to break away from traditional sponsorship and work together for the benefit of the iSCS community. The goal of iSCS is to provide the best opportunity for scientifically-led/peer-reviewed approach to publications, white papers, presentations, other offerings. As with any organization starting at the grass roots, funding is limited and iSCS is no different. Our foundation for funding is the member experience relying on funding from a cost effective member dues. iSCS continues to be a grass root organization. Founded in 2017, we continue to grow and have had our biggest membership growth in 2022. This growth will only continue with those who believe in the mission. We are pleased to announce that our first community champion has stepped up and contributed to that mission.
