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.
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.
