We are delighted to announce that IGDA Scotland’s 2017 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 4 seats available on the board and successful candidates will join our current board members; Timea Tabori, Steven Taarland and Zoë Sams.
We’re especially looking for candidates to help represent Glasgow in our events.
The key dates for the election process are as follows:
- Wednesday 20th September
- Call for nominations opens.
- Friday 20th October
