POLICY CHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT
DC SIGGRAPH is announcing policy changes to our chapter starting in the New Year. Starting in January, DC SIGGRAPH will charge an Administrative Fee of $5.00 at Chapter meetings for all non-members. There is no additional cost to paid members of our local DC SIGGRAPH chapter.
In order to continue to keep the chapter alive we must have paid local members. Annual dues help offset the cost of refreshments and will help with other chapter administrative expenses, including maintaining the Meetup.com fees. We realize this is a tough economy, however, annual dues are only $25.00. If you attend five or more meetings a year, it is more cost effective to join our chapter for the year!
By implementing this new administrative fee, DC SIGGRAPH hopes to grow our chapter, increase our local network, and offer you new and exciting chapter meetings and venues! Additionally, DC SIGGRAPH will be working with ACM to implement the ACM Associate Member program that will give you benefits from ACM when you join our local chapter. Stay tuned for more information regarding ACM SIGGRAPH Associate Membership.
