The EVUA establishes and manages Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to support developments in major network service areas. These are managed by an EVUA Board member and include normally 4-6 members with very active interests in the appropriate area. Support is provided by EVUA Services. If you are interested in joining one of the SIGs then use the contacts on the right. You must, however, become a member of EVUA to take advantage of SIG membership.
