Looking Forward to 2019
Elections will be kicking off soon and we’re very fortunate to have a group of fantastic people from the Chicago community running!
After over seven awesome years on the IGDA Chicago Board, I will be taking a step back to refine the focus of my volunteer activities and tune my industry-life balance.
Rather than just disappearing into the shadows, I wanted to thank you all for the wonderful experience and for making IGDA Chicago a truly excellent chapter of the International Game Developers Association. We’ve come so far since the reboot in 2011 and we’ll no doubt continue to grow and evolve as a community!
Over the past year, I’ve been working closely with Ross Hersemann in preparation for his transition to Chair. I’m looking forward to seeing what Ross, Tom Caprel, and our three newly elected board members have in store for us in 2019!
If you’re interested in helping IGDA Chicago make cool things happen, please don’t hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and let the Board know what your talents and/or interests are. Volunteering is an excellent opportunity to meet tons of people and grow your skills in a team setting.
Speaking of which, I’m super grateful for all of the people I’ve come to know throughout my time on the IGDA Chicago Board and I’m excited to see all of the new connections made, knowledge shared, and the positive impact generated by everyone continuing to come together as a community!
Thank you so much and Happy Holidays,
Heather M Decker
Chair, IGDA Chicago
