Letter from the ED – April 2021 – New Board, DSS, AAPI

6 Apr 2021

Greetings, IGDA and other members of the game industry,

This month we welcome our new board members, Margaret Krohn, Tim Cullings and Taha Rasouli to the IGDA Board of Directors, and bid a fond farewell to current Chair Hans Ten Cate, Chair Emeritus Lucien Parsons, Emily Greer, and Bernie Yee. Natasha Skult, the CEO and creative director of mixed reality narrative-focused Finnish game studio MiTale Ltd., is also stepping up into the role of Chair. We’re fortunate to have talented individuals with such diverse experiences aid the IGDA in its mission of supporting and empowering game developers around the world to achieve fulfilling and sustainable careers.

Next month is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month. The IGDA would like to spotlight some of the Asian and Pacific Islander developers that make up the IGDA, so please submit yourself or other developers you wish to see recognized through this form.

Finally, please take our 2021 Developer Satisfaction Survey (DSS) today here. The form will close on April 11th. We are partnering with Facebook Gaming and Western University to run the 2021 DSS and capture the state of our industry and the health of the development community.
