I just missed the last chance to dance. How about you?

The Secular Student Alliance is the best 'chaptering' organization in our movement... by an extremely wide margin. The number of active chapters eclipses any other organization. Their numbers still continue to grow, and they even have groups at military academies, such as West Point.
