A Special Interest Group (SIG) is a group of club members that have banded together to share information on a specific topic related to computing.

Windows Special Interest Group

This could be a specific program, operating system, or some aspect of computing (i.e. Desktop Publishing or Telecommunications). These groups are chaired by a leader who coordinates the meetings of the SIG. It should be noted that the leader DOES NOT have to be an expert on the topic. If you are interested in forming a new SIG please contact the club Vice President who will help you get started.
