Why Start an ACM Chapter?

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world's largest educational and scientific computing society, delivers and abundance of resources that advance computing as a science and a profession.

Our local ACM chapters help to retain and recruit those who are interested in computing by providing a forum for discussion, debate, and dialogue about the issues facing our industry today.

ACM Chapters provide a range of activities and services including talks by local practitioners, visits from prominent speakers on the ACM Distinguished Speakers Program circuit, technical and career workshops, field trips to computing installatons, and social activities.

ACM hopes the local chapters will empower ACM Chapter Members and prospective members to become involved in various activities and promote the field of computing and computer science within their communities.

Forming an ACM Chapter helps members focus on:

  • Engage students in stimulating computing activities
  • Connect students with leaders in the field
  • Encourage students to advance the field of computing
  • Join mentoring programs for career opportunities
  • Broaden the computing community through ACM
  • Network with other ACM Chapter leaders and members
