Policies and Procedures to create a SIG
The Special Interest Groups (SIGS) provide a forum within CIES for the involvement of individuals drawn together by common interest in a field of study. Recognized SIGS will receive conference space at the annual conference.
Any group of at least 15 active CIES active members may petition for the establishing of a SIG. Each
petition should include the printed names, emails and/or mailing address, and signatures of the members, as well as a rationale describing the purpose, scope, and uniqueness of the SIG and its membership. These petitions will be reviewed and accepted or rejected by the CIES Board of Directors. Approved SIGS are required to submit a yearly annual report. SIGs will be assessed dues to the Association of $150 annual dues to partially defray Society costs for supporting the SIGs Please see the policies and procedures for development and activities of CIES SIGS.
