Volunteer Opportunities

Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

The Special Interest Groups (SIGs) connect assistive technology professionals from diverse backgrounds to other members that share similar interests. Grouped around common themes and issues, the SIGs encourage an inter-disciplinary approach to information sharing, collaboration and connection.  SIG members join together to publish influential position papers, collaborate on conference workshops, and participate in professional development activities.

Current Openings:
