Sharon Eisenberg for 2020 Membership


Sharon Eisenberg is running for the office of Membership Chair of the Los Angeles Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH. She started her tenure on the Executive Council back in 2003 when she was elected Secretary. Her love of being involved with Council activities led her to run for and win Vice-Chair in 2004, and then won a run-off election to be Chair in 2005. She also served an additional two terms as Vice-Chair. She produced numerous events during her time as an officer and raised thousands of sponsorship funds. In addition to offices held in Los Angeles, she also was an active member of the San Francisco SIGGRAPH chapter from 1999-2003. She co-produced the chapter’s first ever showcase of both professional and student animation, and was on the juried panel for selecting works to be screened. When she’s not working at her job in technical quality assurance of subtitles, she loves graphic design, making things on her Cricut Maker, and owns a small business, Rollershirts. Sharon is also a proud mother of two adorable tortoiseshell cats, Stardust (for Bowie’s Lady Stardust) and Paisley (for Prince’s Paisley Park). She also is an active member of the Merchandise and Design Committee of her roller derby league, and served as the league’s Committee Head of PR/Marketing for 2 years. She hopes to bring grass roots efforts in recruiting new members into the chapter, exploring programs for membership recognition and benefits, and corporate sponsorship/membership.
