Committee Chair Candidates Sought

Meeting
23 Apr 2016

ACM SIGGRAPH is seeking candidates for the position of chair of each of the following committees: Chapters, Communications, and Digital Arts. The essential responsibilities of each chair are listed below.

Chapters Chair: Chapters of ACM SIGGRAPH continue the work of the organization on a year-round basis via their meetings, site visits, conferences, video screenings, art shows and special events. Each ACM SIGGRAPH Professional or Student Chapter consists of individuals involved in education, research and development, the arts, industry, and entertainment. The Chapters Committee Chair will help promote, plan, and facilitate the full integration of chapter activities into ACM SIGGRAPH while identifying and facilitating the flow of additional ACM SIGGRAPH benefits to chapters. They will also provide a link for communication with ACM on technical issues, and ensure compliance with all relevant policies and procedures.

Communications & Membership Chair: The Communications & Membership Services Committee oversees content development for the ACM SIGGRAPH web site, membership communications, and benefits procurement. The Communications Chair is also in charge of the ACM SIGGRAPH Village at both annual conferences. The Communications Chair will recommend and implement appropriate communication channels for the organization and its constituents, as well as design and supervise ACM SIGGRAPH web presence and other communications.

Digital Arts Chair: The Digital Arts Committee fosters the evolution of a strong digital arts community within the international organization and promotes a dialogue between visual artists and the larger SIGGRAPH community. It maintains an interactive Arts Portal and an associated social networking site that provides a central place for artists and scientists to share resources, information, artwork, and opportunities for collaboration. The Digital Arts Chair will oversee all of these efforts.

Those interested in applying for any of these positions please contact Scott Owen at scott_owen@siggraph.org. Provide a CV and vision statement (why you're interested in being chair and what you hope to accomplish in that role).

The Nominations Committee will review all the candidates and make recommendations to the ACM SIGGRAPH Executive Committee by June 1, 2016.

The new chairs will be chosen in June, attend SIGGRAPH 2016, and take office September 1, 2016 for a three-year term.
