AMUC SIGs

Between main meetings AMUC provides many small meetings called Special Interest Groups (SIGs). These are held to address the needs and common interests of small groups of club members. A SIG will typically focus on one particular Amiga topic, for example: animation or music. People who do much work in one of the areas covered by AMUC's SIGs may benefit from attending the appropriate SIG as well as the main meeting. For time and meeting places of the specialty SIGs please contact any member of the Exec.
