ACM Advanced Membership Grades

Last updated December, 2019

The Awards Committee of the SIGCSE Board is interested in raising the profile of computing education, and we believe that one way to do this is to have more SIGCSE members identified as Advanced Members of the ACM. There are three advanced membership grades available: Senior, Distinguished, and Fellow. Requirements, due dates, nomination forms and FAQs about each of these grades are available at the ACM Awards page.

A very useful reference is an article by Marc Snir & Telle Whitney in the July 2010 CACM: Advice to members seeking ACM distinction.

Feel free to contact Amber Settle if you have questions.

ACM Fellow

This is ACM’s most prestigious member grade recognizing the top 1% of ACM members for their outstanding accomplishments in computing and information technology and/or outstanding service to ACM and the larger computing community. Applications are due annually at the beginning of September. Fellows require five endorsements from current ACM Professional Members and must be nominated by an ACM Professional Member.
