The ACM Distinguished Member Recognition Program, initiated in 2006, recognizes those members with at least 15 years of professional experience who have made significant accomplishments or achieved a significant impact on the computing field. There are three categories for the Distinguished Member grade level:
- Distinguished Educator
- Distinguished Engineer
- Distinguished Scientist
ACM Distinguished Membership recognizes up to 10% of ACM’s top members who have had significant accomplishments or impact on the computing field. Along with Fellows and Senior Members, ACM’s Distinguished Members are part of ACM’s prestigious Advanced Member Grades Program.
