  • Show off recent projects, articles, your favorite new training prop or gizmo
  • Meet people, compare ideas on trends in training and performance improvement
  • Throw out questions for group input
  • Meet others who share an interest in what's new and fresh in the field.

SIGs and GIGs

SIGs are Special Interest Groups (subgroups) of the Puget Sound Chapter that meet regularly and serve the needs and interests of members and focus on techniques and information relevant to the different functions in the field. A GIG is a Geographical Interest Group that is a general subgroup of the Puget Sound Chapter. It provides similar programs to the main group for professionals who are geographically distant from it. There is no charge to attend regular SIG meetings and meetings are open to the public. We welcome the formation of new SIGs and GIGs. If you have any questions about the SIGs or GIGs, please contact a board member. Learn More
