Executive Committee

The activities of ACM SIGHPC run on volunteer energy. We're still ramping up activities, but there will continue to be a range of opportunities open to people who want to volunteer some of their time.

Executive Committee

SIGHPC is run by an Executive Committee that includes elected officers, appointed office-holders, and (in the future) the immediate past Chair.
