Membership

Our Puget Sound SIGCHI chapter is one of the largest local chapters for ACM in the United States. We are managed by a volunteer board of directors with additional volunteer staff who help with events and community outreach.

The annual membership fee is only $40 per year, which goes to support all of the monthly speaker events plus other social networking events. Because of our membership we are able to invite and host prominent and influential leaders from the global UX and HCI community. In addition, the annual fee covers expenses such as the cost of travel for our speakers, location rental, refreshments, food and supplies. We pride ourselves in providing conference quality events all year round.

Join our community for only $40

FAQ

Why did you start charging for monthly events?

When we started using Meetup last year, our ticket-to-attendance rate dropped significantly. Managing the waitlist was difficult for everyone and we ended up turning away too many people. We believe charging attendance fees to non-members help us ensure that people who want to attend our events get to.

I am a member of the PS SIGCHI Meetup group, so why didn't I get a code?

How do I check my membership status?

To check your membership status simply log in to your account. 

I never get a seat! The events always fill up before I have a chance to register.

We’ll be switching to Eventbrite for our event registration this year, which will allow us to provide early access and reserve seats for paid members. If you aren't already a member, join now.
