Policy on Special Interest Groups (SIG)
In order to provide its membership comprehensive opportunities for learning and involvement in genealogy, the Genealogical Forum of Oregon, Inc. (hereafter Forum) will encourage special interest groups (hereafter SIG) on any topic related to genealogy by hosting SIG meetings in its facilities at no charge, and by encouraging Forum members to form and participate in such groups. A SIG of the Forum may be formed by any member or group of members, and its chair, or one of its co-chairs, must be a Forum member, but SIG membership may not be limited to Forum members.
