Special Interest Groups
PD Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide an opportunity to get to know other PD members in a small group setting.
Each SIG focuses on a specific interest and all are open to new members, though some have size limits or specific requirements.
Do you enjoy trying new restaurants and revisiting old favorites? Or perhaps a night without cooking and clean-up is what you’re after? The Bon Appetit Club is for you. This group dines approximately every six weeks at a local restaurant.
