Thursday, August 12 - Friday, August 13

Our goal is for SIG-a-Palooza to be accessible to as many people as possible to allow for the robust discussions you've come to expect from your SIG meetings, where a variety of experiences and view points can be shared. Another advantage to meeting virtually is that you may attend more than one SIG meeting during the day if you choose. After registering, you may refer to the event page on the Engagefully virtual platform for meeting topics, Zoom links, and additional information.

For those who are unfamiliar with Shared Interest Groups (SIGs), they are member-led groups organized around areas of interest. They offer a forum for peer-to-peer learning in a small group atmosphere. SIGs are a great way for association executives and other leaders to learn from colleagues about the issues relevant to them. If you've never been to a SIG meeting, now is the time to try one out! SIG-a-Palooza is open to all, including Associate members and guests. See below for a list and description of current SIGs. If you are a VSAE Member, you may log in to your Profile to update your SIG preferences at any time.
