New Board Meeting Format and Updates, Elections, and More – 08 November 2013

8 November 2013

Hello IGDA members!

November is here and we’re fast approaching the time to start elections for the global IGDA Board of Directors. Now is the time to start thinking about if you, or someone you know, would maybe be a great candidate to run for a seat!

The board had their last meeting on 17 October and at that meeting we approved the minutes from our September meeting and you can find them here: You may notice something new about those minutes at the very end.

In order to allow the board time to discuss items in more detail we started the process of having various groups and committees send in a report of the items they’ve been working on since the last meeting. This allows everyone to easily see what is going on in those areas ahead of our call so that we only have to take time out to ask questions or talk more about items that interested someone. These are not part of the minutes the board approves each month but added as an appendix to the minutes so that we can make sure you, the members, also see what’s going on.

For October’s meeting we expanded the appendix even further including updates from individual board members and staff to give you a more in-depth look at what is going on behind the scenes. This is a great way to find out what each person is up to so you can ask questions or get involved in the areas that matter most to you. You’ll see those additional updates along with the minutes from our October meeting posted on our website after we approve the minutes at our November meeting which will be held on 17 November 2013.

Yours in service,
IGDA Board of Directors
