ACM SIGGRAPH Chapters Start-Up Meeting

by on Aug.11, 2011, under ACM SIGGRAPH, SIGGRAPH 2011

International Resources hosted a meeting for those interested in starting up an ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter. A key takeaway was that starting a chapter can be a bit of an undertaking and isn’t something that should be entered into lightly. (This is especially true if you’d like to be an officer of the chapter because being an officer requires membership in both ACM and ACM SIGGRAPH.) It is for this reason that finding a leadership group was recommended, because it’ll allow individuals to share the workload. The next step is to gauge interest in your area, because to get a charter, you need 10 people on the application. ACM can help with this, because if you reach out to them, an email can be forwarded to members in your area on your behalf with your contact information.
