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.
