When Should Members Call The SCEA Member Advocacy CenterMembers should call as soon as a problem arises. Often, members struggle with a problem too long and the stress and anxiety takes its toll. We encourage members to call as soon as possible so we can provide guidance and assistance. Very often, a problem can be resolved if it is addressed before things get out of control. Members who call The SCEA will find a caring professional association ready to help.
