Thomas was out at the USC Business of Gaming event last Friday and was welcomed warmly. I understand that the show went well and we signed up a fair number of new members. There's even interest in a ECA Chapter at USC! So thanks to the students - especially Hanna Evron, who organized the event - and faculty, for their hospitality and for their support of the association.
And fingers crossed on the new chapter possibility, there are a few colleges/universities which are all well on their way, and a couple of major cities as well. It'll be interesting to see how quickly they ramp up and how many more follow suit. Undoubtedly, chapters will be the way in which we make the most profound impact and effect real and lasting change. :)
