YOU GET WHAT YOU GET BECAUSE YOU DO WHAT YOU DO
Continuing to do the same things, the same way, won’t provide a better outcome especially when it comes to engaging students, early career professionals, and industry and government individuals. We must work together in developing and implementing improved and more encompassing processes and programs to better serve a diverse society and the community of computing professionals.
A DIVERSE CONSTITUENCY AND CUSTOMER BASE
As a worldwide enterprise, we are favored with a worldwide constituency and customer base from which to draw upon but who also have ever-changing needs as do the non -members who also attend our conferences and utilize our services. The days of “build it and they will come” have passed. We must reach out.
We, as the leading provider of technical information, community services, and personalized services to the world’s computing professionals, must seek out better ways to provide opportunity with focused action especially supporting students and the underserved.
I will be a strong voice from industry and a champion for a globally inclusive Computer Society. I will do my best.
