Today it was announced the current Chairperson, Tara Voelker, will be stepping down from her position while the Steering Committee, comprised of Michelle Hinn, Barrie Ellis, and Thomas Westin, will take control of the SIG.
Information on the website to be updated shortly.
See the offical announcement here:
Although I’ve had a great time being Chairperson, and I can’t thank this group enough for giving me the chance to make an impact on our actions and goals, the time has come for me to officially step down as the Chairperson of the IGDA Game Accessibility Special Interest Group. When I first took the role, I dedicated myself to the job, but after switching studios and moving, I found myself unable to give the SIG the amount of time and commitment it deserves.
I want the SIG to have strong leadership from active members, and with this in mind, I will be turning over the responsibilities of Chairperson to the steering committee, comprised of Michelle Hinn, Barrie Ellis, and Thomas Westin, while I return to being a regular SIG member and remain on our email list.
Together, I’m sure they will be an awesome team to lead us to even stronger and more productive SIG.
I can’t wait to see where they bring us, and wish them the best of luck.
Sincerely,Tara (Tefertiller) Voelker – The Now Former Chairperson : igda-gasig.org
