Board of Directors Elections
Every year nominations for the IGDA Board of Directors are opened up to fill seats left by board members whose terms are expiring or for those whose seats have been vacated. Anyone interested in running for the Board of Directors who meets the requirements to become a board member can nominate themselves.
Board nomination packets are downloaded off the page for that current year’s elections. For the 2013 elections please go here.
In 2012 some changes were made to the IGDA Board and to the nomination process for election to the IGDA's Board of Directors. The changes were made based on feedback from board members, previous board candidates, IGDA members, as well as various suggestions and proposals that have been provided over the past few years. The key changes made were as follows:
Board Size Reduced: The Board size is being reduced over the next 2 years from 12-15 members, down to 9 members: 6 elected and 3 appointed.
Member support of Nomination: Nominees must have 10 IGDA members in good standing support their nomination.
Nomination Committee: At the close of the nomination period a Nomination Committee will evaluate all nominees, and provide to the Board for ratification a final slate of candidates to be put forward to the membership for election.
Each year an updated packet, procedures manual, and elections schedule will be made available here on our website as well as through email to all of our members.
