Join other like-minded professionals to share a variety of experiences and viewpoints at this year's SIG-a-PaloozaFor 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 of SIGs and topic descriptions.

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. Another advantage to meeting virtually is that you may attend more than one SIG meeting during the day if you choose.
