Special Interest Groups

The theme for this year’s conference is “More than a Conference” and that “more” is all about our SIGs. Special Interest Groups are a great way to formalize the networking we do at CAUSE every year so we can keep the channels of communication open and the ideas flowing. With that in mind, UNC CAUSE governance is hoping to more concretely define these SIGs; our goal for this year’s event is to establish some official SIGs, find some leaders, develop plans for on-going communications, and hopefully see some regional or mid-year SIG-focused events.

To help us in this process we’re collecting feedback from our participants and other interested UNC CAUSE alum about the types of groups they would like to see developed into SIGs. There are some obvious ones, but we’re also hoping to collect some not-so-obvious ones. So please consider completing the survey below to let us know your ideas.

Thanks for you time!

SIG Survey

Here comes 2016!

Screen Shot 2016-06-16 at 11.05.27 AMWelcome! We’re very pleased to once again be preparing for the annual UNC CAUSE conference. This year we’ll be back in Winston-Salem, NC at the lovely Benton Convention Center which is currently undergoing a massive renovation. The dates for this year are Wednesday through Friday; October 5-7th, 2016.

As some of you may know the last year has also been a significant one for the UNC CAUSE organization. We now have a governance structure and are working on developing SIGs (Special Interest Groups) that will communicate more over the course of the year and perhaps also host their own smaller regional conferences as needed. We’re very excited to see CAUSE develop more and in an effort to promote these changes this year’s conference theme is “More than a conference.” We’re hoping to use this event to establish some common and popular SIGs and find new ones that might be beneficial throughout the year. If you have any thoughts on specific SIGs or ways that we might try to promote or launch these groups, we’d love to hear them — please contact us!

Thanks for checking in and we hope you’ll come back soon to see all the exciting activities we have planned for this year!
