Other topics may be established over time.
SIGs will be ongoing however, volunteers are requested to commit to their SIG for a period of one year, at least 4 meetings per year. The Board member leading the SIG will provide a written report to be submitted at the AGM.
The meetings will be online, on the second Thursday in February, May, August and October each year. **NB our meetings for 2023 will be confirmed at a later date. We are focussing on our 2023 Conference and EduTECH programs in the first part of this year.**
