SV Orientation

by on Aug.07, 2011, under SIGGRAPH 2011, Students

Student Volunteer (SV) Orientation kicked off just after 4pm on Saturday. For thoseĀ of you unfamiliar with the SV program, it’s designed to getĀ students involved in the conference by making it more affordable. Maya Karp, the SV Chair for 2011, made a brief introduction before playing a video to introduce the SV Committee and Team Leaders. It was hilarious and indicative of the Chair’s (and her team’s) fun-loving nature.

Pete Braccio, the conference chair, made a small statement on what the conference’s theme means to him before introducing the various committee chairs. Pete also made the SVs aware of how many committee members started off in the SV program… Quite a few of them as a matter of fact. Some have made this conference their home as this year’s theme “Make It Home” indicates and have volunteeredfor years.

After the committee members left, the SV Committee went over the FAQs for the SV program.
