A BAPEN SIG is a recognised group of interested individuals within BAPEN with the aim of developing policies, educational programmes, training, research studies or publications in a particular area of common interest.
A SIG will have a chair and a small committee and may appoint a secretary to run the administrative aspects. A treasurer may also be appointed
Members of the SIG must be members of BAPEN.
A SIG should be multidisciplinary but this is not an absolute requirement as the focus is on bringing interested and expert individuals together. Industry members can be present on a SIG but this needs to be in keeping with the BAPEN policy for industry members.
The chair of the SIG sits on BAPEN Council.
