Advertising SIG and Network Meetings

Wherever possible, you should give at least two months’ notice of a meeting otherwise you are likely to get a smaller turnout than the meeting deserves.

The OR Society Website

The Secretary should post details of the planned meeting(s) on the SIG or Network’s website page using Umbraco. A user guide on how to edit the webpage is available on Basecamp.

If you do not have access to your page please send the details through to the ORS contact to update.

Emailing Members

You can also email SIG or Network’s members directly, by completing an ‘Email Request Form’, which can also be found in the Docs & Files folder of RS and SIG’s Basecamp folder. Additional information must be sent to RSandSIGadmin [at]



A write up of any RS or SIG events can be submitted to [email protected] (cc in your office point of contact) no later than the first of the month to be included in the next month’s issue of the magazine. For example, the deadline is 1 June for the July issue. The July issue is emailed to all members on 15 June. The printed copies are delivered the last week in June.

If you have any articles that are relevant to your special interest group and would be of interest to the OR community please submit a draft to InsideOR.


Other ways of promoting meetings include social media, encouraging members and speakers to tell colleagues, and contacting your own non-SIG-member colleagues.
