Special Interest Groups (SIGs) constitute an important meeting point for IAWBH members, serving a variety of purposes:
SIGs are essentially member-driven, with a convenor taking the lead and a co-convenor actively supporting him/her. The minimum set of activities envisaged include a webpage on the upcoming Association website, contributions to the Association newsletter and an e-forum or discussion group. Other activities are expected to emerge from the SIG itself. Convenors manage the activities and facilitate the functioning of SIGs, being assisted in the endeavour by co-convenors.
Thanks to our enthusiastic members, numerous SIGs have been initiated. These include Bystanders, Cross-cultural Issues, Legal Issues, Organizational Influences, Organizational Practitioners, Quantitative Research Methods, Risk Management, Therapeutic Practitioners and Trade Unions.
We would love to have members step up to initiate and convene/co-convene SIGs. Please contact the SIG Coordinator on the Board, Maryam Omari at SIGS@iawbh.org for more about this!
