The Program Committee is excited to promote the AzABA Special Interest Groups (SIGs)! While each SIG works independently on specific objectives related to their general interest area, each group works under the mission and objective of the Special Interest Groups, as outlined by AzABA.

Mission: To provide AzABA members with the opportunity to learn, share and connect with other members in the community with common interests

Objective: To provide resources, an open forum for collaboration, and opportunities to disseminate educational, evidence-based content to association members

Membership: Participation in AzABA’s Special Interest Groups will be limited to members of the association. Please refer to the information on our website to find out more about each SIG, including a brief description and upcoming meeting dates. To sign up for the SIG you would like to join, please log in to your Wild Apricot account and chose from the menu within your Member Profile.

Time Commitment: Given the volunteer nature of the SIGs, it is recommended that the time commitment outlined by each SIG be taken into consideration before joining.
