Special Interest Groups

ASTD NY currently has a number of Special Interest Groups (SIG) and Committees that provide members the opportunity to connect with other learning professionals around certain interests and activities. SIGs allow members to explore the “hot” topics of our profession in more depth, while Committees allow members to contribute to and grow with the chapter by planning and executing special activities to support our membership, chapter and profession.

If you are interested in one of the SIGs or Committees listed below, please contact the leader directly. You may also look for SIG and Committee meetings, which are listed in the Events section of this website.

SIG and Committee participation is a benefit of membership > Join Now!
