Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) complement our general chapter learning events by offering  meetings where people who have a specific area of expertise or interest can get together and be more laser-focused in their learning and networking.

Some of our SIGs develop projects in specific areas related to Talent Development.
