Managing Your ACM Chapter

Speaker:  Alain Chesnais – Toronto, ON, Canada
Topic(s):  Graphics and Computer-Aided Design


Alain Chesnais will talk about his experience working in chapter leadership for the past 25 years. He started out his ACM experience volunteering to stuff envelopes for the Paris chapter in the mid 80's and ended up chairing the chapter in the early 90's. He continued on as a volunteer in the Toronto SIGGRAPH chapter when he moved there in the late 90's and has continued as an active volunteer both at the local and at the global level for ACM and SIGGRAPH.

This talk will focus on the challenges volunnteers face when organizing a local community through the ACM chapters program and will propose concrete solutions for many of these challenges. Specific examples of successful strategies will be presented to give attendees ideas about how to organize successful events within the constraints of what is often a very limited budget. Particular emphasis will be given to existing resources available at ACM to allow you to organize successful and engaging events.
