if you would like to be nominated or would like to vote,
I recommend to check the IGDA status.
Can we wait until everyone who is going to update or get/renew a membership
has done this?

Betreff: [games_access] It's coming! Game Accessibility SIG Elections
As some of you already know, we are going to start the formalization process
for the Game Accessibility SIG. The framework is flexible enough to
accommodate the diversity of all of the SIGs. With this information in hand,
we can move forward and initiate the process of holding Game Accessibility
SIG elections. We have a lot to accomplish and I'm sure you want to spend as
little time to do it, so please review the rest of this email carefully.
Our first order of business is to review the general process. This SIG will
follow the basic format of the following:
1) The SIG opens up the nomination process in order to gain nominees for
the SIG steering committee.
2) The nominees statements (assuming more than one of you run!) go up on
the SIG's section of the website.
3) All SIG members who are IGDA members are asked to review the
statements and go vote.
4) Voting ends and the ballots are counted.
5) The winners are announced, they take office, they appoint your Chair.
6) Everyone cheers!
Please take some time to think about this process and if you would like to
run for steering committee. Then feel free to chime in about any questions
you have about elections, voting, or what the steering committee duties
entail. We want to encourage multiple people to run and since you'll have
multiple people elected you can help continue making this SIG rock. I am on
this list so I'll see any questions or you can email myself directly off
After discussions, an email will go out early next week asking you to submit
Remember - only official IGDA members will have voting rights. (So please
join or renew your membership ASAP! http://www.igda.org/join)
Thank you so much for your participation. It's important for the Game
Accessibility SIG members to take part in the decision making process
whenever possible. Elections can be a complex and controversial (or
apathetic!) process, but these new guidelines, in conjunction with this SIGs
awesome members, will help make the process go relatively smoothly. I really
look forward to hearing what everyone thinks over this next week!
Have a great week!
P.S. For those of you who are curious about nominations - anyone can
nominate a qualified person. The nominees must be an IGDA member in good
standing; have been a member for at least two membership years prior; adhere
to the Leadership (Board of Directors) Code of Ethics; and agree to read and
follow the IGDA SIG reference manual with respect to their legal, financial,
and organizational responsibilities. An official call for nominations will
go out once everyone has had some time to talk.
