Pop-Up Events

Pop ups are member sponsored events that don’t fall under the categories of our established SIGS. They can include members and nonmembers as participants and take place throughout the year. They must be scheduled with, and cleared, in advance, by Nora Sirbaugh (Vice-President) in order to avoid conflicts with events planned by the SIG leaders, who have first dibs on dates, and with other members planning pop ups.
