Greetings SAIGE members and friends,
We have all experienced challenges the past few months, and SAIGE had to cancel its annual Training Program for the first time in 17 years due to the pandemic. To recognize 2020 as a unique year when we could not congregate as colleagues and friends, SAIGE wanted to provide a way that we could offer you to feel a part of the organization and express solidarity together.
The board has partnered with Martin Sports Apparel in Michigan to make branded gear available for you to show your SAIGE pride. The board has had a special slogan created for this memorable year: Peace, Hope and SAIGE. We wish you peace of mind in the here and now and hope for the future.
The items available for purchase at this time are t-shirts, bucket hats, face masks and polo shirts. In the fall there will be more items for sale. Profits from these sales will help SAIGE in operational expenses to get through the year. We thank you for your support of SAIGE. Be sure and shop early as there are a few items that are limited stock! To see our stock go to:

Chair, Board of Directors

The COVID-19 global pandemic has put a strain on resources everywhere: medical, financial, educational, emotional, social, and more.
I want to take this opportunity to inform you that our 2019 Annual Report has been posted to our website at saige.org. We had a busy year at the National level as well as at the Chapters. I hope you will take time to review the report. It is posted under annual reports where you will find many of our annual reports.
On behalf of the Board of Directors we hope you are staying safe and remaining home during this ongoing pandemic. If you must leave your home to run errands please wash your hands for 20 seconds when you return and don’t touch your face. Your health and safety is important during this time.
Fredericka J Joseph
Chair, SAIGE, Board of Directors
Out of an abundance of caution, SAIGE is cancelling its 2020 National Training Program. Please see the announcement letter below from our Chair, Fredericka Joseph.
