SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are communities of our members who are interested in sharing ideas, knowledge and experiences with others in a specific field and a common interest area, offering the opportunity for ongoing interaction among professionals regarding a certain topic.

What are the benefits of joining a SIG community?

- an international forum of support, expertise, thought leadership, advice and guidance

- networking amongst professionals

- a platform for education, training and CPD

What do you get from joining a SIG?

- Access to exclusive, specialised content, including resources containing videos, podcasts, articles, research studies, useful web links

- Regular e-updates: news, events, workshops and conferences organised around the world each year

- Networking opportunities

- In-person and virtual collaboration opportunities

- Newsletters

- Discussion forums

What SIGs need to do

- Have a coordinator for each SIG

- Have one publication in each month (teaching tip, review, conference report, etc.) – shared in the newsletter

- Maintain a ‘teaching toolkit’ database – teaching tips, resources, etc. – with each member sharing at least one resource / tip / idea per quarter

- Annual meeting (main conference in October or February Winter Warmer)

- Conference proposals (themed sessions at the conference)

- Organise an event – CC presentation, webinar, etc.

- Maintain a Facebook-page
