If you haven't already pledged your allegiance to the ESA
or the ECA
, you might be interested in hearing that the Entertainment Media Council
-- a group of game industry professionals whose mission is to "transform the way the game is played and advance the industry to the next level" -- has just announced its Charter Membership Program
. The EMC is apparently looking for "businesses whose leaders believe in our mission" and promises "lifetime recognition and lifetime memberships for key personnel." The real question: Does said "key personnel" also receive a private bathroom? Also, any chance to sign a massive charter document? Please say yes!
Unfortunately, the call for charter members doesn't go into that kind
of detail. It does, however, feature a laundry list of expectations of its potential members, including the reduction of "unnecessary and wasteful layoffs" and an intention to "increase the success rate of new firms" -- two things we can certainly get behind. There's a heap more information for, um, you businesses
out there interested in joining. Just check out the EMC website
