Special Interest Groups
Southeastern is listening! Many of our members have asked for more ways to interact with each other and meet colleagues with similar interests. With that in mind, we would like to establish Special Interest Groups for staff of member organizations. We have created a quick, 3-question survey to help us meet your needs. Please take a minute to give us your feedback, and we will do our best to accommodate based on what we hear from you!
The survey is here: What Kind of Special Interest Group are You?
