SIGs - Special Interest Groups
- - Are you collecting a special topic?
- - From time to time do you feel like you want to ask like-minded members and specialists for help?
- - Do you enjoy getting in touch with other members to discuss news and research involving your speciality?
Then you should be very much encouraged to join one or more of our SIGs.
Read all about the Special Interest Groups and please decide if you want to participate.
A SIG IS:
A list of names. The names are of people who have similar collecting (or other type of) interest as you. Everyone in a SIG is, of course, a member of SHATPS. SIG members pay no additional dues. They can “opt out” of their SIG at any time if they don’t want to be helped to connect with other similarly-minded society members, or if they are averse to helping to create one article per year. No-one is “forced” to join a SIG; joining a SIG really doesn’t “force” you to do anything.
A SIG leader can ask, but cannot compel you, to help in writing an article. That is, you can decide to remain in a SIG and never lend a hand in co-authoring anything! But naturally we hope everyone will be “good citizens” and will do their part, however small it might be, to add something to an article once per year from their group.
