Recommendations from the SGB EC

Recommendations from the SGB EC

SIGACCESS

Recommendation: The SGB EC congratulates SIGACCESS on their program performance and finds it viable to continue its status for the next 4 years.

SIGACT

Recommendation: The SGB EC congratulates SIGACT on their program performance and finds it viable to continue its status for the next 4 years.

SIGAda

The SGB EC notes that that the Ada community is shrinking and is concerned about the viability of SIGAda. The SGB EC suggests that the SIGAda leadership review the needs of their community and determine if remaining a SIG is the most appropriate way to serve them.

Recommendation: It is recommended that the SIGAda status be extended for a two year period. In one year,  the SIGAda leadership is expected to report to the SGB EC on the success of the modifications made to the conference and provide the SGB EC with a plan for the future. That plan may include remaining a SIG, becoming a sub-unit of an existing SIG or completely de-chartering. Will Tracz will Mentor SIGAda and work with the leadership following the SGB meeting.

SIGCAS

The SGB EC is concerned that the SIGCAS newsletter is more than 2 issues behind. They also noticed that the SIG has limited activity and no social media presence; a surprise  considering the topic. The late newsletter is cause to put the SIG into automatic transition however, the SGB EC believes it is appropriate to give the SIG time to correct  their concerns.

Recommendation: It is recommended that the SIGCAS status be extended for a one year period. In one year,  SIGCAS leadership is expected to bring the newsletter up to date, develop and prepare a set of plans and activities to include a social media presence and present to the SGB EC. If the newsletter is not brought up to date at the time of the next viability review, the SIG will automatically be placed in transition. Will Tracz will Mentor SIGCAS and work with the leadership following the SGB meeting.

SIGCSE

Recommendation: The SGB EC congratulates SIGCSE on their program performance and finds it viable to continue its status for the next 4 years.

SIGDA

Recommendation: The SGB EC congratulates SIGDA on their program performance and finds it viable to continue its status for the next 4 years.
