SIGCHI was formed in 1982 by renaming and refocusing the Special Interest Group on Social and Behavioral Computing (SIGSOC); Lorraine Borman, previously editor of the SIGSOC Bulletin, was its first chair.
SIGCHI has two membership publications, the SIGCHI Bulletin and ACM Interactions.
Each year SIGCHI inducts around 7 or 8 people into the CHI Academy, honoring them for their significant contribution to the field of human-computer interaction. It also gives out a CHI Lifetime Achievement Award for research and practice, the CHI Lifetime Service Award, and the CHI Social Impact Award.
SIGCHI is governed by an Executive Committee (EC) which is composed of officers elected by SIGCHI members, the immediate past chair, the editors of SIGCHI publications, and other appointed members.
