The SIGCSE Committee on Computing Education in Liberal Arts Colleges has two projects is looking for volunteers to get involved in two upcoming projects.

First, we are beginning planning for our annual Affiliated Event to be co-located with the 2023 SIGCSE Technical Symposium. The committee facilitators have begun developing a proposed structure for the 2023 event building on our experiences with prior events, but we are looking for additional members to be involved in planning. Participation would be welcome for event proposers/leaders for the event overall or program committee members to help plan smaller sessions such as panels or breakout discussion. In the past, planning the Affiliated Event has been able to take place mostly over email and via collaborative document editing, with a small number of virtual meetings. Even if you just have an idea for an interesting topic for us to incorporate, we'd love to hear from you.

Second, the Committee is working to transition from being a SIGCSE Committee to being a SIGCSE Chapter! This shift will give our group a permanent status (as compared to the temporary status committees hold) and also give us access to ACM resources and procedures, including the ability to receive corporate sponsorship for our events under the ACM's tax exempt status. Our application for Chapter status requires identifying chapter Officers as well as ACM/SIGCSE members who are willing to be part of our initial Chapter membership for the purposes of demonstrating sufficient interest in our events and activities. If you'd be interested in a leadership position within the new Chapter, we'd love your help and are particularly looking for people who may want to help with soliciting sponsorships or serving as Treasurer. We're also interested in those who may want to be part of the initial membership to demonstrate interest in the Chapter and provide input on activities. To start, we anticipate that Chapter activities will be similar to the Committee activities to date, but that this new structure will give us potential for growth.

For both of these projects, we have opportunities for those who want to take on a significant role or those who are interested in helping out with smaller pieces. In general, we try to make participation in these tasks rewarding and flexible. In some cases, event organizers have been able to use their work to inform scholarly publication or other academic activities.

To volunteer, or if you have questions/would like more detail about any of these projects, contact me via email ([log in to unmask]). If you'd like to chat with previous event leaders and committee facilitators about their experiences and plans for these projects, many of us are also on Slack in the SIGCSE-LIBARTS-COMM group:
