Thank you for your willingness to support SIA.  As you may know, we are an all-volunteer organization and our success depends on our supporters. 

Our volunteers generally contribute in one of two ways: Serving on a conference committee, or updating our publications.

We host four annual conferences, including two “Back to Basics” conferences in the winter and summer, and two “Advanced” conferences in the spring and fall.  Our winter and spring conferences are virtual, and our summer and fall conferences are in person.  Each conference is organized by a committee that includes 4-5 volunteers and a member of the Board.  Conference committee volunteers work together during the three months before the conference, with the most intense support required during the conference.  If you are selected to serve on a conference committee, a Board Member or the Conference Director will reach out to you to gauge your interest and availability.

Our publications cover a variety of topics, including exemptions and exceptions, mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, voluntary disclosures, and other compliance topics.  We update the publications every few years or when there are major changes to the regulations or guidance.  The Board typically organizes a team to support the updates.  As with the conference committees, a Board Member will reach out to you to gauge your interest and availability when the team is forming.

We refresh our volunteer lists every year, so please make sure to renew your interest periodically.  If you have any questions about the volunteer process or would like to discuss with a Board member, please email us at

Best regards,  
SIA Board of Directors
