Interest Groups

NASP Interest Groups

The NASP Interest Groups bring together NASP members from around the world that share common areas of expertise and concern. Please visit the NASP Communities to interact with other members, pose questions, and seek advice. In addition to discussions and resource sharing in the NASP Communities, most Interest Groups hold an annual meeting at the Annual Convention. Interest Group activities are open to NASP members.

For more information on a particular group or practice area, contact the respective Interest Group Coordinator.
