Participate in a Special Interest Group

The ability to network and share outside of one’s primary vertical, is one of the biggest benefits of MAG membership. However, there are times when it makes sense for merchants within the same vertical to discuss and share industry-specific challenges. To meet this need, the MAG has formed breakout Special Interest Groups or SIGs.

Special Interest Groups or SIGs offer merchants the ability to network and share within the same vertical to discuss and share industry-specific challenges. These groups help identify critical and emerging industry issues, and merchant members may participate in a variety of SIGs.
