The Board of Directors recently had their semi-annual offsite meeting. We met for two and a half days to discuss IGDA business, check in on our progress from last year (e.g. we hired our wonderful Executive Director Kate Edwards!), and develop a set of focuses and goals for the upcoming 6 months.

This offsite the Board once again had each Board Member select a few key areas from our agreed upon major areas as their priority moving forward and met as these various groups to create measurable goals to accomplish before the next board offsite.

The main areas of focus for the board, with the key board members responsible, going forward are:

  • Finance/Sponsorships: Tom, Ed, Dustin
  • Events: Tom, Dustin
  • International Growth/Formalization: Luke, Dustin
  • SIGs and Chapters: Sheri, Luke
  • Membership: Ed, Sheri
  • Employment Contract Initiative: Brian, Ed

If you have questions regarding any of these key focus areas, please feel free to reach out to us. Individual email addresses can be found at, or you can contact the entirety of the Board at

We will continue to provide updates on these projects monthly, so please watch this blog for updates on meeting minutes being posted.

Thank you again for your participation.

Yours in service,
IGDA Board of Directors
