ESP offers an opportunity for members to collaborate around special interests. Some of these special interest areas have organized into a more formal structure within ESP called Affinity Groups.
Currently we have one affinity group. You may join an affinity group by adding the group name to your membership profile. Simply click on your name above (you will need to log in). Then select edit profile. From here you can add (or remove) your name to any affinity group.
Most recently the previous Latino and Urban Affinity Groups merged into a single group. Profiles of current members will be update to reflect this change.
For additional questions, please contact the group's chair.
