News from the Vice Chair for Finance is rarely glamorous or exciting, nevertheless here's the latest on SIGCHI's finances.
Joseph Konstan has just put together a task force to consider conference finances and draft a policy that reflects our new situation. We hope to provide consistent guidance to the conferences on what funds conferences should return, and avoid mid-course corrections once planning begins for a conference. We may also develop different policies for handling of the CHI conference compared to our other, specialized conferences, and for conferences we co-sponsor.
The group consists of Joseph Konstan, Ian McClelland, me, and Dennis Wixon as chair -- and we'd welcome your input and suggestions. You can find our email addresses on http://sigchi.org/officers/
