GDAA Student Membership

Just to let everyone know that the GDAA is now taking student members.
It's $11 a year for students. An application came in each bag at the GDC. I have looked at their website and can not find an application form. Might be worth an email if your interested.

Can you type up some more info about this from the application? I'd like to post this on the main page (or you can do it if you like).. the GDAA website has nothing on it, unfortunately..

I would... but I sent off my application *grin*
I couldn't pass up the $11 membership fee.

I know there are a few others out there who might be able to supply you with more details.

I think you can always join the GDAA, its just that they put in the applications into each satchel just in case. Somehow I don't think the GDAA website is very well updated / maintained.

Damnit I need more cash to join all these organisations etc.

AFAIK the student membership is fairly new.

My understanding what that IGDA was trying to pull in some of the Aussie studios but they were not keen on jumping into the IGDA. So there was talks earlier this year about trying to open up the GDAA to students.

It is good to see that they have. Now to find out what it is that they can help students with :)

Let's hope it makes us more employable :-)

That would almost be enough, and if not that then to allow us to start another indie studio, as that would give back to them when we have to pay the full price :-)
