IGDA NYC serves the greater New York City–area game developer community as a whole, and most of our events and benefits are open for anyone to enjoy regardless of IGDA membership status.
However, the chapter could not exist without its registered IGDA members. If you have benefitted from the presence of the NYC chapter and are in a position to contribute, we strongly encourage you to join in supporting the work that we do locally, as well as the work of the IGDA worldwide, by enrolling as a member of the IGDA and (this part is important!) selecting New York City as your official chapter.
The IGDA is celebrating the new initiatives and member benefits it will be introducing at GDC with a limited-time promotion.
From 19 February through 25 March, individual memberships are discounted by 25%.
In addition, chapters are eligible to receive funding bonuses for hitting enrollment benchmarks. If you've been on the fence about joining, now's the time—make it official today and help earn extra money for IGDA NYC programs and events!
