Introducing the Region and SIG Co-Chair Hub Pages!

We appreciate all the work our co-chairs do and know it can be hard to keep track of all the moving parts of being a chair. Our goal is to continue building out this page in order to create a one stop shop for Region and SIG chairs. If there is something you would like to recommend for this page please email

This main page will contain information and documents relevant to all chairs. The Region Chair Hub and the SIG chair Hub will contain information specific to those positions.
