Group Info & Team Leaders


On any given day, SIWA members – often with their friends and family – are learning something new, discovering a hidden talent, sharing their experiences or giving back to the community through one of SIWA’s Interest Groups or Tours.

Whether it is a one-day outing or a monthly gathering, join in the fun through one of these SIWA member – organized and – led activities. Online advance registration is required.

If you would like to create a new Interest Group, please contact us here.
