Membership & Marketing

The orientation is meant to provide an overview of ACM for newly elected SIG leaders. It will start with a continental breakfast followed by a general session from 8:30 am – 9:15 am. Participants will then be placed into small groups to attend workshops on Finance, IS, Publications, Membership, Chapters and PR. The workshops are done in “round-robin” fashion with the speakers moving from session to session. Following the last session at 2:50 which will be followed by a SIG/Conference Fair where participants will have appointments at a variety of stations to discuss the latest information on SIG Services and conference activity. The “Fair” is a new format we are experimenting with in order to personalize the sessions based on the specific needs of the participants.

Lifelong Learning

ACM offers lifelong learning resources including online books from Safari, online courses from Skillsoft, webinars on the hottest topics in computing and IT, and more.


Volunteer with SocialCoder

You can use your technical skills for social good and offer volunteer support on software development projects to organizations who could not otherwise afford it. SocialCoder connects volunteer programmers/software developers with registered charities and helps match them to suitable projects based on their skills, experience, and the causes they care about. Learn more about ACM’s new partnership with SocialCoder, and how you can get involved.
