Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are vertical, industry-centric groups where EEA members in a specific industry segment exchange information, share use cases, and work together to ensure that the EEA technical specification supports their specific industry market requirements. To foster information exchange and collaboration, SIGs host phone calls, webinars, and in-person meetings that often feature speakers and industry presentations on important blockchain concepts and technical innovations.

To add in the development of EEA technical specifications, SIGs will often submit their requirements and/or use cases to the EEA Technical Specification Working Group for inclusion in these spec development efforts.

The SIGs serve to provide important touchpoints for program managers, business professionals, architects, and others who want to stay informed on blockchain technologies and industry happenings as well as advance the state of the art for their respective companies and industries.
