IGDA formally licenses its first European chapter
IGDA formally licenses its first European chapter
October 31, 2012 | By Tom Curtis




Newsbrief: The International Game Developers Association announced today that one of its global branches, IGDA Finland, has just become the first European chapter to be formally licensed as a legal entity.

This means that IGDA Finland is now recognized as an association under Finnish law, and because of this new status, the organization claims it can focus on regional concerns, and use more of its membership fees to cater to the needs of its local members. It also plans to expand beyond Helsinki and build a network of new student clubs all over the nation.

Going forward, the IGDA said it plans to formalize other its existing international chapters so it can increase its support for game developers all over the world. For more information on the IGDA, visit its official website.
