Activities & Groups

This section provides information on our current seven Special Interest Groups (SIGs), and related collaborative arrangements. Since 2014, the Collaboration has established a number of SIGs to provide expert advice, support its strategic aspirations, while enabling professional development and experiential exchange within various regional professional communities of practice. All SIGs are assigned a Steering Group Sponsor, to provide further support, insight and communication.

New Groups

As of mid-2019, the newest approved SIGs are the Marketing & Communications (MarCommsG) and the Mercian Metadata (MMG) Groups. Further groups, either ongoing or finite task & finish, to meet particular partner needs are frequently discussed by the Directors Board but may also arise from discussions by staff within membership organisations. However, currently there are no further SIGs under consideration or discussion. To discuss potential groups, contact the Development Officer.
