As 2014 draws to
a close (how frightening!), many of us are struggling with gift ideas. Just in
time for the holidays, SAH/SCC has a brand-new membership benefit that can help
you find interesting gift ideas. SAH/SCC members now enjoy discounts at the
Designers & Books Online Book Fair (onlinebookfair.designersandbooks.com).
This website brings together some of
the most important names in architectural publishing, including MIT Press,
Princeton Architectural Press, and Lars Müller Publishers, as well as some
fabulous boutique publishers SAH/SCC members are familiar with, such as DoppelHouse
Press. The latest in art, architecture, design, and photography books are all
there at 10% to 50% discounts for SAH/SCC members. All you have to do is enter
the SAH/SCC membership discount code when checking out. You’ll be

programs and materials that broaden and deepen the understanding of Southern
California’s built environment.
This is the time of year when our
mailboxes become stuffed with appeals from nonprofit organizations offering a
last-minute tax donation and the opportunity of a feel-good moment during the
holidays. Please consider adding SAH/SCC to your list of charitable donations
this holiday season. Go to the SAH/SCC website at www.sahscc.org and click on
the “Make a Donation” button on the right hand side of the page. Upgrading your
membership is a great way to support the organization.
It’s also the season to spread the
cheer. Give memberships to your friends and families. They’ll get the book
discount code, too. SAH/SCC memberships are reasonably priced, are guaranteed to fit anyone, and are always in

ongoing support. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events in 2015!
