Volunteer with ACM-W North America

ACM-W North America, like ACM-W, is organized and led by professional and student volunteers. The committee supervises the activities and initiatives that support all North American chapters of ACM-W. There are many opportunities to help others while also building your own network and leadership experience.

The committee seeks professional (two-year terms) and student (one-/two-year terms) volunteers from across North America who are interested in serving as subcommittee chairs and/or members. To ensure we fully represent North America, we especially encourage volunteers outside of the U.S. (Mexico, Canada, and other countries in North America).

Subcommittee chairs will participate in monthly Executive Committee meetings (August-May) and lead subcommittee meetings, as appropriate (max. ~1x per month, August-May).

Subcommittee members will participate in subcommittee meetings (max. ~1x per month, August-May).
