Moderator: none

Purpose: The motto (or at least one of them) for the ACM is "Keep the
information flowing".  This is precisely the intent of this USENET
conference.  The ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) is
comprised of over 80,000 members located throughout the world who
interact on many levels.  These levels include student and local
chapters as well as the association level.

The inherent purpose is to keep the information flowing between these
levels and individual members.  This greater connectivity will not
only benefit the organization as a whole but will also help educate
those not in the organization about the future of computing, computer
education, computer legislation and various professional issues in
computing (ie. certification).

This conference will serve as the basis for all of these discussions
until such time as seperate conferences are necessary for a more
detailed discussion of a specific topic area (eg, a seperate
conference for various SIGs [special interest groups] like SIGGRAPH).

This discussion will be deferred to the conference news.groups and
will be culminated in a formal call for votes if there is no
outstanding opposition on 3/24/91.
