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.

benohawkThat still isn't Steam pay royalties. At best it is Bethesda not being willing to relicense the music,07/27/2015 - 12:51pm
Infophile(cont'd) different service. This often happened with TV shows, where music was only licensed for broadcast, but not for DVD release. So for many older shows, they either have to relicense it or use different/no music for the DVD release.07/27/2015 - 12:36pm
Infophile@benohawk: It most likely comes down to the original licensing agreement for the music in it. Often those agreements only license it for the medium it first releases in, so it has to be re-licensed if it's rereleased in a different form or through a ...07/27/2015 - 12:35pm
benohawkWhy would steam be paying royalties on anything in quake?07/27/2015 - 12:01pm
black mantaI recommend using the KMQuake II patch which supports .ogg music files, then downloading the music from someplace, then dropping it in to a music folder into the \baseq2 directory.07/27/2015 - 10:32am
black mantaI got Quake 2 during the Steam Quakecon sale. Funny thing is, there's no music for it! Guess Steam didn't want to pay the royalty fees or something.07/27/2015 - 10:30am
black mantaLike EZK, I also have a backlog of games. Right now I'm playing Crysis 3 for the first time, and replaying Quake 2.07/27/2015 - 10:29am
E. Zachary KnightZippy, No. It is because I have a backlog of games a mile long and have not bought to many new games, which includes Mass Effect.07/27/2015 - 9:28am
