ACRM Networking Community Group Meetings

Dozens of ACRM Community Group VIRTUAL NETWORKING hours are built into each day of the CORE conference. Morning & afternoon meet-ups each day of the CORE event will include a brief overview of the goals and leadership of the group.

Here is where you can chat & connect with peers, researchers and presenters all over the world face-to-face. Depending on your time zone and your preference, bring a beverage — coffee, tea, lemonade, wine, beer, water and toast to change & to meaningful connections. There will be meet-ups in the morning & afternoon each day of the CORE event.

ISIG Meetings

ISIG = Interdisciplinary Special Interest Group

Show-up and engage at the many opportunities with the ACRM INTERDISCIPLINARY SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS (ISIGs). These typically are the longest-running and largest of the ACRM family of Community Groups. Don’t let their abbreviations scare you; new members are wanted & welcomed. ISIGs operate with their own executive committee and are comprised of Task Forces — each focused on a specific topic or project. As an ACRM member, you may participate in existing task forces or propose and lead the development of a new one.

*Exception: the BI-ISIG (Brain Injury ISIG) will not meet in the mornings or evenings. Instead, the BI-ISIG annual Summit will be held  (date to be determined).

ACRM Task Force Meetings

ACRM Task Forces are the driving forces within the 22 Community Groups. As an ACRM member (everyone registered for the event is automatically an ACRM member for six months), you may participate in existing task forces or meet with the Chair of these groups to propose and lead the development of new ones. See the latest schedule of our ISIG and Networking Group Meetings where many will have task force meetings during the break out sessions.  Please also note, there are a few Task Force Meetings occurring separately from their affiliated ISIG or Networking Group.  See the latest schedule >>
