Dancey Resigns as GAMA Treasurer
(SEATTLE, WA) – Ryan Dancey tendered his resignation as Treasurer of the
Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA), Thursday. Dancey, who was elected
at the Annual Membership Meeting a month ago, disclosed to the board
shortly after his election that he had penetrated the GAMA Board of
Directors e-mail list and had been reading board e-mails for some time.
He certified to the board that no one else knew about this breach and
that information gleaned from the action was not disseminated to any
Last week, the board of directors informed members of the former board.
Wednesday, the board informed the Full-Voting Membership at large. In
the wake of discussion on the FVM e-mail list, Dancey decided it was
best to resign.
“Over the past several weeks it has become obvious to me that the
important work the Board was elected to undertake has taken a back seat
to dealing with the issue of my access to GAMA’s internal communications
prior to the election,” he wrote in his letter of resignation. “As I am
aware of the number and nature of the immediate issues confronting the
Board, and as I believe that the Board needs to address those issues as
fast as possible, I believe that my continued service as GAMA Treasurer
has become an impediment to that work, which must be removed.”
“I hope that Ryan’s resignation will aid us in moving forward,” GAMA
President Don Perrin said.
Dancey’s resignation became effective at midnight PDT on the 29th. A
successor has not yet been selected. Perrin indicated that further
information on that subject would be forthcoming soon.
So, yeah, he’d been listening in on confidential internal Board communications prior to the election…but it had NO impact at all on getting his cronies into power. Sure. I buy that.
