IGDA Looking for New Executive Director

July 26, 2010 -

International Game Developers Association (IGDA) Executive Director Joshua Caulfield (pictured) is leaving the organization in order to take a similar post with an association for architecture students.

IGDA Board of Directors Chairman Gordon Bellamy called Caulfield’s departure “amicable,” adding, “… we appreciate all the hard work and dedication Joshua has poured into being our Executive Director over the last year.”

The IGDA also noted that it is reorganizing its infrastructure in order to “better serve its members.” As part of its retooling, the IGDA created a committee system, with each committee—Membership, Policy/Advocacy, Events/Sponsorship/Partners, Technology, Marketing/Communications, Special Interest Groups and Chapters—chaired by a board member.

Caulfield said it was “time for the next step in my career.” He continued, ““I think the IGDA is headed in a great direction, and I look forward to helping to make this a smooth transition.”

Caulfield will leave the IGDA in August. He was named to the post last July in the wake of the resignation of Jason Della Rocca. The organization is launching a search for his replacement.

Hey GP, care to add this info to your article? http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/102323-Major-Shake-Up-at-the-IGDA-as-Director-Resigns

 

Sadly, the only place where it is mentioned, is that link, the members were NOT INFORMED that Brenda and another director quit. In fact, asking the board result in no response.

Naaah, there is no reorganization, only two Exec Directors quitting in a row + board members quitting too.

That is more akin disorganization.

I was going to say....... this is a rather "infolite" and cherry review of the situation....


I have a dream, break the chains of copy right oppression! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/cigital-disobedience/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.
