We are delighted to announce that IGDA Scotland’s 2016 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.
We have 3 seats available on the board and successful candidates will join our current board members; Mal Abbas, Jaime Cross, Andrew Macdonald and Tony Gowland.
The key dates for the election process are as follows:
- Monday 3rd October
- Call for nominations opens.

- Must be an IGDA member by this date to participate in the vote.
