Joshua Caulfield在2009年7月份的时候接替离任的Jason Della Rocca成为国际游戏开发者协会的执行董事，在这之前IGDA执行董事曾经空缺过一段时间。Caulfield具有很丰富的工作经验，在就职IGDA前，他是美国机械配件行销协会的执行副总裁（American Machine Tool Distributors Association）。
The International Game Developers Association is in the process of changing to meet the needs of its growing membership. Earlier this year, the IGDA’s Board of Directors created a new committee system to focus on different facets of the organization. Each committee is overseen by a Board member, including Membership, Policy/Advocacy, Events/Sponsorship/Partners, Technology, Marketing/Communications, Special Interest Groups and Chapters. These committees allow a broad base of members to make a difference and push organization-wide initiatives forward.
The IGDA will also be searching for a new Executive Director during this reorganization. Joshua Caulfield, who has been in the position for just over a year, will be leaving to become the Executive Director for an architecture student association.
“It’s just time for the next step in my career,” said Caulfield. “I think the IGDA is headed in a great direction, and I look forward to helping to make this a smooth transition.”
“We wish Joshua the best in his future endeavors. It’s absolutely an amicable parting, and we appreciate all the hard work and dedication Joshua has poured into being our Executive Director over the last year,” said Gordon Bellamy, the chair of the Board of Directors. “We’re going to come through this a stronger, better organization and we’re making our volunteers an integral part of the change. We’ll keep everyone informed as these roles are filled in the coming weeks and as the IGDA continues to evolve.”
