Special Interest Groups

ARMA's Special Interest Groups (or 'SIGs') provide an excellent opportunity for our members to engage directly with each other. Members use the SIGs to share knowledge, expertise and good practice, to test out new ideas, get feedback on new approaches and, most importantly, make connections.

SIG events

Many SIGs organise their own networking events, bringing like-minded colleagues together to explore specific topics. SIGs also form a key strand of our Annual Conference.

SIG Champions

Each SIG is led by one or more champions – ARMA members who volunteer their time to promote the sharing of best practice and to encourage members to participate in the regular discussions. They also help to populate and update sections of the online Resource Library. If you are interested in taking on the role of SIG Champion, please do get in touch.
