Be Creative. Stay Connected. Keep Inventing.
ACM offers the resources, access and tools to invent the future. No one has a larger global network of professional peers. No one has more exclusive content. No one presents more forward-looking events. Or confers more prestigious awards. Or provides a more comprehensive learning center.

Learn more about ACM’s commitment to ethical standards: the ACM Code of Ethics, Software Engineering Code of Ethics and Professional Practice, and Committee on Professional Ethics (COPE), which is guiding these and other intiatives.
You can use your technical skills for social good and offer volunteer support on software development projects to organizations who could not otherwise afford it. SocialCoder connects volunteer programmers/software developers with registered charities and helps match them to suitable projects based on their skills, experience, and the causes they care about. Learn more about ACM’s new partnership with SocialCoder, and how you can get involved.
ACM has launched a local events initiative in several major US cities to help computer professionals like you build personal networks of smart technical people nearby. You can share work experiences and insight, discuss new research ideas and provide guidance in finding a job or launching a new venture.
ACM Members Around the World
ACM offers complimentary materials for students and professionals interested in the computing field. These materials are available to educators and students for educational use.
In her blog post for Computer Weekly's WITsend blog, ACM President Vicki Hanson discusses ACM's all-female leadership team, how diversity is helping to redefine what a computing professional is, and how the digital world is expanding career opportunities for non-technical people. "While most will not become expert, basic skills will be required for them to be effective in their careers and to deal with the myriad of online offerings for communication, entertainment, retail, and government services," she says.
ACM congratulates Neil Croll, the Lead Enterprise Architect at ON Semiconductor, who won the 2020-2021 Ambassadors for ACM Grand Prize, a Google Pixel Slate. Winning the 2nd Grand Prize (Apple AirPods Pro) was Vagisha Jain, Executive Board Member, UPES ACM and ACM-W Student Chapters, University of Petroleum and Energy Studies.
The Distinguished Speakers Program (DSP) is one of ACM's most valued outreach programs, providing universities, corporations, event and conference planners, and local ACM chapters with direct access to top technology leaders and innovators from nearly every sector of the computing industry. ACM will cover the cost of transportation for the speaker to travel to your event.
