Introducing our 2014 Election Candidates and Opening of Voting

We’re extremely proud to announce that the nominations for this year’s Board of Directors election are in, with a total of 7 candidates running for 4 open seats and the opportunity to directly shape the chapter’s future. These new directors will serve for up to 2 years, and join existing board members Andrew Macdonald and Brian McDonald.

This also means that the voting phase of the election process has begun, where IGDA members (with voting rights) can have their say on how the chapter is led, and the chance to decide who best represents their interests. This is a remarkable improvement over our very first election last year, which was more of a formality with no real contest. The results of the election will be announced at the Annual General Meeting and Social on 19th November from 19:30 at The Admiral Bar in Glasgow, which you are welcome to attend! It will be a great chance to meet the new board members and celebrate how far the chapter has come over the last year. We are still seeking a sponsor for the AGM! If you can help, please contact info@igdascotland.org.
