ACM SIGGRAPH is managed by a nine-person Executive Committee (EC): three officers (President, Vice President, and Treasurer) and six Directors at Large. Members of the EC are elected by the ACM SIGGRAPH membership and serve three-year terms. Elections are conducted annually to fill open positions; this process is led by the chair of the Nominations Committee. All officers and directors are required to be members of ACM and ACM SIGGRAPH.
Nominations for the ACM SIGGRAPH Executive Committee may be submitted in July of the year prior to the beginning of the position term. To submit a nomination, contact the ACM SIGGRAPH Nominations Committee Chair.
