Special Interest Groups

Connect with your peers year-round by joining one of our new Special Interest Groups (SIGs). These members-only communities are created to foster connections and share knowledge online and in-person at Society meetings. The inaugural SIGs are:

Special Interest Group: Adrenal & Pituitary
Special Interest Group: Early Career
Special Interest Group: Entrepreneurship
Special Interest Group: Transgender Research & Medicine

SIGs are a way for you to expand your professional networks, identify potential collaborators, and explore innovations in research and care through the SIG’s online groups. In these electronic groups, you’ll be able to network with members from all around the world at any time, share and comment on resources, post videos, upload articles, and participate in a discussion board. These groups will expand your networks beyond those in your geographic area and those that you meet at ENDO and Clinical Endocrinology Update.

FAQ

What is a SIG?

SIGs are member-led communities that facilitate online interactions and in-person networking opportunities at Society meetings (ENDO and CEU). SIGs may be topic focused, based on career level, or other topics of interest to members.

Who leads a SIG?

SIGs have formal Steering Groups comprised of 3 or more members. These members are responsible for ensuring the online community is active by encouraging online post discussions, scheduling quarterly webinars or live-chats, and planning in-person networking opportunities at ENDO and/or CEU. Steering Groups achieve these goals by creating annual workplans. SIG steering groups are tasked with engaging the SIG membership in creating these workplans to ensure that their activities are of interest to the community.

For the 2020, the SIG steering Groups have already been identified and are as follows:

How are SIGs created?

The inaugural four SIGs were recommended to the Board of Directors by the Communities of Practice Workgroup after conducting a year-long process of exploring online communities and topic areas that would resonate with our membership.

The Board is accepting new applications for groups, and will include the following steps:

  • A proposed Steering Group of at least 3 members who are willing to serve for consecutive years to support the SIG;
  • 30+ members who have indicated they would be willing to join the SIG and are committed to interacting on the online platform;
  • A list of goals and a formal workplan the SIG wishes to accomplish in its first 2 years under its inaugural steering group.

    Visit this page for more information on the application and resources for SIGs.
