Need to Verify Your Membership!

If you provided an email address when you joined the SIG, you should have received a Welcome email from a member of the IDL SIG Member Services team containing valuable information about your membership. If you did not provide an email address when you joined the SIG, you should have received the Welcome letter by regular mail. If you did not receive either of these, you can email the Membership Manager to verify your membership or make other membership-related inquiries.

Help make the SIG work for you!

Please take a moment to let us know how you feel about our SIG's activities or perhaps you want to help. In either case, we would love to hear from you!
