The Design Society supports Special Interests Groups (SIGs). SIGs provide opportunities for DS members and non-members to network, share ideas, experience and knowledge, collaborate, learn and open new research topics.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) may be established with approval of the Board of Management. SlGs shall be responsible for the organisation of events and activities within a particular area of interest to further the Society‘s aim and objectives. A SIG is managed by two or three leaders. Each SIG has an appropriate committee (steering committee) established in order to support the SIG Leaders in carrying out their tasks. The SIG leaders must be members of the Design Society.
SIGs welcome non DS members to participate in some of their activities to allow them to appreciate the benefits of being part of the DS community.
