With the successful reboot and re-launch of the IGDA’s Chicago chapter well underway, it is time for us to begin the process of electing the IGDA Chicago Board of Directors who will supervise the business, property and affairs of the chapter. Each of these individuals will give their time and energy to move the chapter forward in the direction they feel most represents the will of the membership and the good of the chapter. This process is a key step in proceeding with the official chartering of the Chicago chapter under the IGDA banner.
At this time we would like to open the floor to nominations for seats on the Board. Please consider your recommendations carefully, since the Directors of the organization are representative of you as the membership.
If you are nominating yourself, please send a short candidate statement to email@example.com that we can post for the membership to help them vote. If you are nominating someone else, please be sure to include complete contact information for the person.
There are only two requirements to be on the Board: You must be a paid member of the IGDA currently and you must able to commit to attending the board meetings and IGDA Chicago meetings with some regularity (details will be discussed with board members after elections).
Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 PM central time on November 22nd, 2011. After nominations close, we will be sending additional information about the candidates and voting process.
If you are interested in getting involved but don’t have enough time to serve in a Board capacity, please consider signing on as a volunteer. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org interested. Building a strong chapter takes many hands, so get involved!
