[games_access] Questions about this SIG

It's for the SIG steering committee -- three people will be elected and those three will choose the new chair. I've been chair for too long! :) Besides, time to get some new energy going!

Sheri Rubin <sheri at designdirectdeliver.com> is running the SIG elections -- all the SIGs are having or have had elections. It's new for most SIGs but the new IGDA elections definitely help!

Email Sheri -- she is the one who is running the elections. I can't do anything about the deadlines -- she's the only one who can extend the deadlines. They have someone from outside the SIG run the elections so that it's as objective as possible. I don't know how many people are running -- if there aren't enough then they might extend them but I don't make any of those decisions!

Sorry I can't be more helpful -- I really don't have any control over this other than to answer questions about the SIG and being chair for those who have asked specific questions.
