These regional groups are open to all members and focus on a wider agenda than previous SIGs.  Most members have expressed their preference for regional meetings as opposed to national meetings. would like to widen the attendance beyond the special interests of a specific group. 

We are still looking to the members of the groups to participate in setting the agenda based on their current interests, so if you wish to attend, it would be great if you could suggest agenda items as well. We will plan the day and content based on the priorities of attendees.
