Special Interest Groups

ACIH Special Interest Groups (SPIGs) are established to foster a regular pattern of interdisciplinary activity between executive staff and key board members for ACIH member groups. Meetings enable participants to learn from each other and better identify and foster action which is aligned with ACIH’s core mission.
