Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are an integral part of DMA, a means to focus on more technical topics that are of special interest to our members. SIGs normally meet once a month at a time and location of their choice. Their programs may include guest speakers or short talks by their attendees. These meetings are free. Anyone is welcome to attend. No reservations are needed.
