The International Games Developers Association (IGDA) has discussed details of its changes to membership fees/program. The IGDA ended its managing agreement with CMP (the owners of the Game Developers Conference, as well as Game Developer magazine and Gamasutra.com) in December, and commented at the time that this would lead to certain changes to member benefits and services. The first announcement to this effect has been a reduction in the association's membership fees, to grow the IGDA community and to help attract international members: - $48: 1-year membership (previously $100) - $90: 2-year membership (previously $170) - $35: discounted 1-year membership for those from "developing countries" - $30: student membership (previously $35) These news fees will apply to all new and renewing memberships, with fees for studio affiliates also being reduced. New members will no longer receive a free subscription to Game Developer magazine, but members who joined prior to 2005 will continue to receive their subscription for the duration of their current term. IGDA members will, however, still receive a $50 discount on registration for this year's Game Developers Conference (GDC). The association has also launched a new beta of its members-only profile and directory system, with members being encouraged to set up their profile and provide feedback. Further information on all these points, as well as details of the association’s advocacy efforts in regards to quality of life issues, can be found at the IGDA website at www.igda.org.
