- In SIGCHI each new connection you make may lead to something new, a fun idea, a rewarding experience, a novel direction for thinking or a life-long colleague.
- In the grand scheme of thing, the HCI community is very small and the problems we face are large. Membership in SIGCHI shows your commitment to grow and nurture this community and the next generation as it tackles these problems.
- The people, their infectious ideas and their dreams to invent the future.
