A chapter web account is your chapter's unique login information to access your Chapter Administrative Interface: it consists of a username and password, and uniquely identifies your chapter when trying to access protected parts of the ACM web site.
The Chapter web account is intended for the use of your Chapter officers only -- please do not share your chapter account information with anyone outside of the Chapter officers. The Chapter web account is entirely separate from a personal MyACM account and the log-in credentials do not overlap.

Your Chapter web account allows you to access the Chapter Administrative Interface, where you can update your chapter's profile, add new officers, manage your membership list, complete annual reports, and submit events to the ACM Local Activities Calendar.

Newly chartered chapters will be invited to create a chapter web account via email once their charter is official. If your chapter is already chartered, but has not been invited to create a chapter web account or have trouble accessing an existing account, please follow this link for assistance: If you have further questions, please contact

If you have trouble logging into your chapter's web account, please check the following:

  1. Please ensure you are using the username and password for the chapter web account.
  2. Please try clearing your browser cache, quitting your browser, then launching the login page again.
  3. Please ensure the URL you are using has not been accidentally truncated.

To manage your chapter web account, visit

Bookmark this page and log in to the Chapter Administrative Interface from here, or bookmark the Chapters home page and follow the"Chapter Administative Interface" link from there.

ACM offers its chapters an Administrative Interface, allowing you to:

  1. Manage your chapter's member roster
  2. Add new officers after an election
  3. Update your chapter's address and contact information
  4. Submit events for inclusion in the new ACM Local Activities Calendar
  5. Complete your chapter's annual report as required by ACM bylaws

You may add events directly through your Chapter Administrative interface. These will be posted to the ACM Local Activities Calendar. Entering events to the calendar through your chapter interface will automatically add these events to your Annual Report.

ACM's fiscal year begins on July 1st and closes on June 30th. Every chapter is required to file an annual report each fiscal year without exception. The annual report covers chapter financial information, chapter activities, and the IRS 990 Form.

To complete an annual report, log in with your chapter web account username and password and select"Annual Reports".

A chapter must have at least one current officer listed in their Chapter Officers section before an annual report can be completed.

To add your chapter's current officers, log in with your chapter web account and select Chapter Officers-Add.

All sections of the Annual Report must be completed before the report can be finalized and submitted. ACM requires all chapters enter at least one future activity for the upcoming fical year, so we can be assured all chapter remain active and viable.

Please go back and check each section. Missing information will appear at the top of the invididual section, in RED. Each page must be saved before moving on. If you feel you have completed the report and are still unable to submit it, please contact

ACM ICPC(Association for Computing Machinery – International Collegiate Programming Contest) is a world-wide annual multi-tiered programming contest being organized for over thirteen years. The contest is sponsored by IBM.

No, definitely not. Once the teams enter the contest area, they are well separated from all other people accompanying the teams (such as advisors, coaches and reserve). Teams may elect for their coaches to serve as interpreters for written clarification requests to the judges. The replies, which are directed to all contestants, are in the contest language.

No. But, it never hurts to ask.

ACM Student Chapters have faculty advisors. ACM Programming Contests have coaches. Coaches once were called advisors but this lead to confusion.
