What are HAA Shared Interest Groups? Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) connect thousands of alumni through local programming, websites, social media, and a variety of HAA programs. Interests range from student activity to identity and from profession to religion. Many of the nearly 50 HAA-approved SIGs hold events during Commencement week to bring together returning, reunioning, and local alumni. See below for a listing of the HAAs SIG Reunion Events for 2013! For more information about HAA SIGs and a full listing of the organizations, please visit http://alumni.harvard.edu/haa/clubs-sigs/sigs-directory.
