Just curious - what value do you get from the SIGs? I've belonged to a
specific SIG for years and I think maybe I received a related email over a
year ago, and nothing since. Since I find it difficult to attend meetings
(because of other obligations and distance) I really struggled with renewing
my membership this year.
