GAMA plays musical chairs

Perhaps in an attempt to quiet its recent critics, GAMA has taken a few steps toward rearranging its staff and Board of Director positions. Late last week, Mark MacKinnon of was named Treasurer, taking over the position vacated after Ryan Dancey’s resignation. Now GAMA has appointed Mike Stackpole to fill the Director-at-Large seat left open by MacKinnon’s switch. Stackpole has exactly the sort of reputation GAMA could use right now, from championing the industry against attacks from other organizations and generally being a fellow with strong ethics. Stackpole continues to serve as chair of the GAMA Industry Watch Committee, so he’s no stranger to GAMA. Still, even with the changes being implimented, feelings are still running high about events of the last few weeks.
