BRIDGE MEMBERSHIP

SCCA understands that every career transition has its challenges, and all the more when moving from private practice to in-house, or vice versa. A complimentary SCCA Bridge Membership is our way of welcoming you to the in-house community, and will help you ease into your new role. And if you are moving back into private practice, there is no reason why you would not want to preserve your ties with the in-house community.
