Special Interest Groups Virtual Open Houses/Networking Meetings 

Each year, the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide an opportunity for members, students, and affiliates to meet, learn about the SIGs, and network with colleagues. This year, the SIGs will be hosting virtual open houses and networking meetings October 19–29. Everyone is welcome!

Stop by and meet SIG volunteers, ask questions, and share ideas. Coordinating Committee members will be available to provide information about the SIG, including 

  • 2020 accomplishments
  • 2021 plans and goals 
  • Upcoming volunteer opportunities

These events are open to anyone who would like to learn more about the Special Interest Groups; see below for instruction on how to access each event.
