Board of Directors

Our organization is currently governed by an all-volunteer, 29-member board of directors, which includes entertainment industry executives, labor and trade representatives and local community leaders. The following key illustrates individual members’ stakeholder affiliation:

  • Entertainment Industry Members
  • Entertainment Union / Guild Members
  • Community Members

The board’s active committees include board and non-board members and meet regularly to monitor our operations, finances and community relations efforts and make recommendations to the board and its executive committee.
