About the SIG:  SIG stands for "Special Interest Group".  We are an informally organized peer learning community of training and teaching professionals.  We focus on building our skill and knowledge in the practice of Accelerated Learning.  We meet every other month for a 2-hour educational program.  Presenters are "members" of the group or AL practitioners we bring in from other parts of the U.S. or world.  To keep our programs accessible we usually charge only $5 to attend.  RSVPs are recommended to make sure everyone gets handout copies. 
Please see details of our upcoming events on this page.  Contact
Sarah Spengler (216.392.9643) or Susan Aldrich (216.965.2035) for more information or to get on our mailing list - or email us at the link above.
We are affiliated with both the International Alliance for Learning and the NEO Chapter of ASTD but you do not need to be a member of either of these groups to attend our events.
