Nominating Committee Report
The ACM SIGGRAPH Nominating Committee was tasked this year to present a slate of candidates for the following positions on the SIGGRAPH Executive Committee:. Director for Communications . Director for Education . Director for Professional Chapters . Director-at-Large (Two positions)
The ACM Bylaws require that (n+1) candidates be nominated for each named position being contested. By tradition, SIGGRAPH nominates two candidates for each open position. The petition procedure for member nominated candidates is described below.
ACM SIGGRAPH, primarily through our annual conference, has an operational budget of around $10 million per year. This year the Nominating Committee has made an effort to put forward candidates with the breadth of vision and of technical, application and managerial experience to help make wise decisions and to provide current and future leadership for SIGGRAPH. We hope that you will read the candidates' statements with as much care as they wrote them and think about how each would influence the future of your professional organization.
Ballots, including copies of the candidate statements, will be mailed to SIGGRAPH members in a first class mailing in late April. Candidate statements will be posted to this web site in early March.
