Members

(updated August 19, 2023)

The Steering Committee chair is appointed by the SIGCHI Executive Committee and reports to the SIGCHI Executive Committee. CHI SC membership is by invitation from the SC (via the Chair). Senior members of the community who are interested in serving on the Steering Committee should inform the SC Chair of their willingness. The normal term of service is five years. Members can be renominated. Normally, a member of the steering committee in any combination of roles would not be expected to serve for more than ten consecutive years.

Expected memberships include one General Chair for the CHI conference in two years, in one year, both General Chairs of the CHI Committee of the running year, and one General Chair of the CHI from the past year. As the CHI Steering Committee (invited membership) reports to the SIGCHI Executive Committee (elected membership), concurrent service on the two committees is not permitted.

The current (and past) members of the Steering Committee are:
