Groups

MCN members may join MCN Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which represent topical interests and regional areas. There is no limit on the number of SIGs one may join, although we request that MCN members only join the regional SIG that represents their area. There are no fees to join topical SIGs; some regional SIGs assess minimal dues to cover local expenses.

SIG Charter

Activities of MCN Special Interest Groups are guided and governed by the SIG Charter.
