One of my areas of focus in NASAGA is to make it easier for game hobbyists and enthusiasts to get involved. One way I want to do this is to gather cases of NASAGA members who got into what they are doing because of their passion for games. For those people who already know games, we want to raise awareness of how they can turn their passion into something valuable for an organization.
So, the purpose of this request is to collect your stories. I'm seeking people who came to an organization with ideas that came from their love of games. What I'd like to know is:
- Where in the organization did you find traction for your game-based ideas, and
- How did you go about proposing your new ideas?
I have a presentation at the Board Game Geek convention in a few weeks on this topic, and the goal of the presentation is to help board game enthusiasts to see different places and methods for approaching organizations with a game-based idea.
