Since ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter officers are required to be ACM SIGGRAPH members you are eligible to vote in these elections and it is important that you review the candidates each election and vote.
Each chapter also must conduct elections according to their chapter bylaws, usually annually. It is important to attract and keep a pipeline of qualified candidates to keep your chapter running smoothly and avoid burnout.
