Chapters & Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Please be advised that Chapters may be meeting virtually or in person depending on their local health measures in place for their region and comfort level as a chapter. Email the Chapter to find out more information.
Although POC is an online member community, we have 11 chapters across Canada where members can meet local colleagues face-to-face.
Additionally, we have a system of support and networking for POC members who are working in a particular area of practice, in the form of Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
Opportunities to Engage Locally
Monthly chapter meetings are a great way to connect, share and learn. Guests are welcome to attend Chapter meetings which are a great opportunity to learn about what we offer.
There are many benefits to participating locally:
- Networking opportunities
- Education and professional development
- Support and camaraderie

Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are intended to be a system of support and networking for POC members who are working in a particular area of practice. Specializations will be in areas normally considered as within the broad description of professional organizing.
