Our Special Interest Groups

 

The various educational interests within the Education Section have produced three areas of intense activity. Each special interest group (SIG) has established its own governance, activities and annual programming. The SIGs are each supported in part by funds from the Education Section, and  are complimentary to Education Section members. If you are an Education Section member and would like to join a SIG, visit the individual SIG webpages and click on the Sign Up link.
