Your chance to network and connect over common issues professional bodies face.

PARN runs a number of SIGs (Special Interest Groups) for our members - see the navigation on the left of your screen or click the logos below to see details of the SIGs that are currently available to our members.

By running special interest groups (SIGs), we encourage dialogue among our members and disseminate knowledge and understanding about best practice among professional bodies.

Each of our special interest groups meets two to three times each year. Meetings are a mix of in-person and virtual, while we are trialling a hybrid approach where facilities allow. Meetings are free to attend for PARN members, although some larger in-person meeting may incur a small cost, this will be made clear on the registration.

For non-member we can arrange specific annual membership to our special interest groups, however by becoming a PARN member, you can reap the benefits of accessing all of the SIGs for free within our professional body membership. Visit our membership page for a comprehensive look at our membership benefits. 

Visit our Events to check for upcoming SIG meetings.

Staff from our member organisations are welcome to join our special interest groups.

Calling for expressions of interest in a General Interest Group (GIG).
PARN want to offer our members the opportunity to attend a GIG to discuss topics of general interest, outside of our more specific Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

This platform will be an opportunity for members to bring ideas and concerns to share with others, to facilitate networking and collaboration among professional peers.

Please contact [email protected] with your expressions of interest in attending, or becoming a Steering Group Member.
