Sections and Special Interest Groups
Academy Sections and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide a forum for member discussions, professional enhancement, and recognition.
Additionally, these groups provide the Academy with important contributions from various fields of study or practice. Only Fellows of the Academy are permitted to join a Section or SIG. To learn more, visit the pages listed below.
Each Section is required to establish a Diplomate program to provide an avenue for Fellows committed to attaining a higher level of performance and excellence with an opportunity to achieve additional distinction. Diplomate candidates must be current Fellows of the Academy.
Fellows, to join a Section or SIG, please use the button above. Simply highlight the Sections/SIGs you’d like to be part of and press “Update Communication Preferences” when completed.

There is no fee to join and no limit to the number of Sections/SIGs you can be part of.
