Affinity Groups Forming
After a successful kickoff at the ENAR 2024 Spring Meeting, we had more than 10 Affinity Groups proposed, from LGBTQIA+ to Stati-stitchins (knit/crochet). With JSM around the corner, there are opportunities for these groups to meet up, and there is still time to join! If you are interested in providing ideas for the creation of an ENAR affinity group, leading an affinity group, or learning more about the role they might play, please complete the interest form here or contact IDEA Committee members Sarah Lotspeich and/or Paul Rathouz.
