Special Interest Groups (SIG)

Welcome to the Special Interest Group (SIG) Membership Program!

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are communities within GPA composed of members with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge or learning in their field. The SIGs communicate during the year via our GrantZone Community or face-to-face at the annual conference. Members may choose from any of our 17 SIGs. In your membership profile, you will designate your primary SIG for our reference but are welcome to network within any of the groups.

To participate in a SIG discussion: Access our GrantZone Community at  You can choose to add yourself to any of the SIG Communities by clicking on Communities/All Communities, then clicking Join on the right side of the page.

To change your primary SIG: Login to the GPA website and click on the "Your Account" link under your name. Click on My Profile under the My Information section and scroll down until you see the Additional Information section. Select your primary SIG in the Special Interest Group drop-down box and then click the Save Changes button.
