Interested in volunteering or have feedback?

The ACM SIGGRAPH Practitioner Career Development Committee is ramping up on our year-round activities, and we are always looking for suggestions and volunteers from our community for projects, topics, activities, and directions that the committee should undertake. While we cannot guarantee to pursue all of them, we will carefully consider how to best incorporate them as part of efforts.

Note that the committee may not be able to respond to emails immediately given their bandwidth. That being said, we will do our best to reach out as soon as possible.
