Why Captains' Circle?

Just as a ship needs a captain, SSHSA needs members to provide crucial support that will help our ship navigate through our recapitalization effort to bring fiscal equilibrium to the Society. Through membership contributions, Captains' Circle members establish leadership in supporting SSHSA.
