We’re delighted to announce that the IGDA Scotland 2013 Elections are now underway.
Elections are an important way for the members of the organisation to determine who is going to run things. It’s an opportunity to make changes to the team that represents your interests to make sure that they are adequately taken care of, and they’re also an excellent way to get more involved with the chapter and help to shape our future.
You can read the full information about the election process here, but here is a short sumary:
- September 13th:
- Call for nominations opens.
- October 9th:
- Nominations closed. All nominations must be received by this date.
- Must be a member by this date to participate in the vote.
- October 10th
- Distribute Election Materials to members
- November 6th:
- Deadline for votes
In order to nominate yourself as a candidate for election, you have to be an IGDA member in good standing with voting rights (i.e. a professional member, not a student member). You must also agree to be bound by the IGDA Scotland Bylaws, and also have read the Election Procedures Policy for the 2013 election. Then all you need to do is to email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you intend to stand, including your 400 word candidate statement.
