2014 SIOP Community of Interests (COI) Sessions

Presented by:

Christopher Cerasoli, The Group for Organizational Effectiveness, Inc. (gOE), Chair

Looking for a SIOP forum that is informal, insightful, and encourages audience participation? Communities of Interest allow you to meet new people, discuss new ideas, and have an active role at the forefront of a hot topic in I-O. There will be 11 outstanding Community of Interest (COI) sessions this year, specially designed to create new communities around common themes or interests. The sessions have no chair, presenters, discussant, or even slides. Instead, they are a casual discussion informally moderated by one or two facilitators with insights on the topic. These are great sessions to attend if you would like to meet potential collaborators, generate ideas, have stimulating conversations, meet some new friends with common interests, and develop an informal network with other like-minded SIOP members.
