We are delighted to announce that IGDA Scotland’s 2015 Board of Directors Nominations are now open!
This process is an important way for the members of the organisation to have their say in who is going to run things. It’s also an opportunity to make changes to the chapter’s leadership in ways that represent your interests as a game developer; and finally, they’re also an excellent way to get more involved with the chapter yourself, and help shape our future.
The key dates for the election process are as follows:
- Wednesday 4th November
- Call for nominations opens.
- Friday 13th November
- Nominations close.
- Must be an IGDA member by this date to participate in the vote.
- Monday 16th November
- Distribution of Election Materials to members.
- Monday 23rd November
- Deadline for votes.
- Last Week of November
- New board members to be announced at Annual General Meeting.
- Date and details to follow soon!
In order to nominate yourself as a candidate for election, you must be an IGDA member in good standing with voting rights (i.e. a professional member, not a student member), must agree to be bound by the IGDA Scotland Bylaws, and also have read the 2015 Election Procedures Policy.
To nominate yourself, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your candidate statement (of up to 400 words) and a profile picture, before 23:59 on 13th November to let us know you wish to stand.
To vote for board members you must have a current IGDA membership which does not expire after the 13th November 2015. If you are not already a IGDA member you can become one here.
