Member-Led Groups

As a membership-driven organization, SID-US convenes its members and the broader community through its member-led groups. The purpose of the groups are to provide a space for our members to connect, learn, and have discussions based on common interests. All member-led groups meet on a regular basis under the leadership of two co-chairs, with support by an associate.
