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. Join the SIGs' online community, Community Connect, 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

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.

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

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.

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

Participate in a SIG by attending upcoming webinars and engaging with SIG communities on Community Connect. You must be a current Endocrine Society member to access a SIG. To check the status of your membership or to join/renew, please contact [email protected].
