This is the ACM SIGCHI Conferences Call for Volunteers for consideration to join either the Conferences Board or Conferences Working Group. We are searching for interested people for what are quite different volunteer roles.
The SIGCHI Conferences Board is a committee which supports the Vice President of Conferences in SIGCHI Conference related activities. Its membership is approved by the SIGCHI Executive Committee and includes nominees from the Vice President of Conferences and the SIGCHI Council of Steering Committee Chairs (CSCC). Members of this committee typically hold the role of incoming, current or past conference Steering Committee (SC) Chairs for a SIGCHI specialized conference or CHI, or have commensurate levels of experience with conference management. This group is planning a meeting face to face this May. To date it has been working as a distributed board.
The SIGCHI Conferences working group supports the ACM SIGCHI Vice President for Conferences in operational aspects of the SIGCHI conference series e.g. access to mobile app setup, banner development, calendar management, in-cooperation approvals and more.
Some new activity this group will take include certificates of appreciation, recoding conference hisfory and social media advice. This group will continue to largely function using online communication and coordination tools.
Applications will be accepted until Tuesday Feb 19, 2019 (end of the day AOE) or until suitable candidates are found.
