Focus Group Formation

If an ONS member is interested in organizing a focus group on a particular topic that is not identified by an existing Focus Group or Special Interest Group, the Membership & Component Relations Director will contact the member to determine their willingness to serve as the Contact Person for the group.  Focus Groups are established by ONS members who have applied to the Membership & Component Relations Director and have received approval from the Society's Board of Directors.

If you are interested in starting a focus group you can contact C. DeMarco @ to get further information.

The ONS Focus Group Directory has been prepared to assist eligible ONS members who have questions concerning the groups. The directory lists the contact person of each Focus Group. Members who are interested in joining one of these groups may contact the ONS Office at 412-859-6230, or the Focus Group Contact listed here. All ONS members are eligible to join one or more Focus Groups. The Focus Groups are:
