CHAPTERS ANNUAL REPORTS

ACM's bylaws require chapters to meet minimum levels of viability and to report on all financial activity during the year. Therefore, all ACM chapters are required to complete an annual report at the close of every fiscal year (July 1-June 30). The following information is captured in the annual report:

  • Basic Finances and Census
  • Cash and Disbursements
  • Income to Third Parties
  • Income from Donors
  • Meetings and Recent Activities
  • Upcoming Activities
  • Authorization and Signatures, allowing ACM to include the chapter in its group filing with the IRS

To complete the report online, you must log in with a unique chapter web account. Please note your chapter web account is entirely separate from your personal web account and should be accessible to all officers:  http://www.acm.org/chapters/chapter-administrative-interface

If you are unsure of your chapter web account or need to reset the password, please follow this link:https://accounts.acm.org/signin.cfm.

If you have further questions regarding starting ACM chapter, please contact local_activities@acm.org.

The DevOps Phenomenon

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” consistently serves up expert-curated guides to the best of computing research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. This installment of RfP is by Anna Wiedemann, Nicole Forsgren, Manuel Wiesche, Heiko Gewald, and Helmut Krcmar. Titled “The DevOps Phenomenon,” this RfP gives an overview of stories from across the industry about software organizations overcoming the early hurdles of adopting DevOps practices, and coming out on the other side with tighter integration between their software and operations teams, faster delivery times for new software features, and achieving a higher level of stability.

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.
