As a matter of common professional courtesy,
when new volunteers are being selected,
others who might be affected by this selection should be informed.
A volunteer being considered for a position within
ACM SIGGRAPH should discuss with the volunteer considering him/her
all current and potential commitments, as well as the
support for ACM SIGGRAPH work from his/her employer.
In case the volunteer already holds or is being considered
for another ACM SIGGRAPH volunteer position,
the person who manages the other position should be notified
so that the three of them can discuss what
is involved in each job.
This also gives the manager of the other position the
opportunity to raise concerns,
and both the volunteer and the person considering this
volunteer can better determine whether he/she is able to
handle either one or both of the responsibilities.
