REMINDER: the deadline for this Call for Nominations is this Thursday,
September 15th. All SIGCHI members are encouraged to self-nominate or
nominate another member to run for office.



ACM SIGCHI is a volunteer run organization. The ACM SIGCHI Executive
Committee (EC) acts as its overall governing body. There are six
different volunteer positions currently up for the 2006 election by our
membership to the ACM SIGCHI Executive Committee. The ACM SIGCHI
Nominating Committee is seeking exceptional individuals interested in
participating in these leadership opportunities: 

President and Executive Vice President (who run as a pair)

Vice President of Membership and Communications

Vice President of Finance

Vice President at Large (two open positions)

If you are interested in applying for one of these positions, or you
would like to recommend a great candidate, please send an email to
[log in to unmask] detailing full contact information and
addressing the following questions: 

1) What position would you like to be considered for (or are you
recommending someone for)? 

2) What professional, personal, and volunteer skills or experience do
you or your nominee bring that make you feel that you/they are a good
candidate for this position? 

3) Are you/they currently an ACM SIGCHI member? If so, how long have
you/they been a member? What do you, or your candidate, feel are some of
the most valuable assets of ACM SIGCHI Membership? 

4) What do you feel would be the greatest opportunities to add value
that you/they would likely address in your/their new position should
you/they be elected? 

5) Human-Computer Interaction is a rapidly evolving field. ACM SIGCHI
must constantly re-evaluate how it functions as an organization in order
to address these changes. What long term opportunities do you or your
candidate see for the organization and how would you/they address those

6) Please share the volunteer positions that you/they have held within
ACM, ACM SIGCHI, its conferences, or any other related activities.
Please cite the volunteers that you/they reported to for the volunteer
positions held over the past five years, as a reference. If you can
provide current contact information for these references, it would be
greatly appreciated.


More information about the duties of each position can be found in our
bylaws at the following URL:


You are also encouraged to contact any EC member, especially the
nominating committee chair, and any in a position you are interested in,
for further details on any role. The EC member contact list can be found
