ABOVE & BEYOND - Start Spreading The News: The City That Never Sleeps Is Home To Tireless PGA Volunteers

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, October 17, 2017

They say that if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere, and the two PGA members being highlighted this month prove that old song true once again. Both are members of the Guild’s AP Council Board of Delegates and much, much more 


Kiran Malhotra has served as Vice Chair of the AP Council and is a member of the National Board of Directors. She has been involved with the Employment Committee in NYC, but for the past couple years her main focus has been on creating education and training opportunities for PGA members. Kiran volunteers because, she says, “I want our members to be the most employable producers in the business.” The key for Kiran lies in giving her colleagues  opportunities to learn new skills. “When I ran for a seat on the AP Council Board of Delegates,” she explains, “I promised to create more training classes for members, and I intend to keep that promise.” An essential element of that plan is to encourage even more of her fellow members to share their time and expertise. “If more people get involved, then even more amazing programming can be produced, meaning more opportunities to learn and to network.” When Kiran is not volunteering, she is a supervising post producer and story producer, most recently on History Channel’s Alone.



Jackie Stolfi has been a member of PGA East for several years and has been involved since day one.She served as Co-Chair of the Employment Committee for many years and volunteered on the PGA East Screening Committee since its inception. She currently serves not only on the AP Council Board of Delegates, but as the Financial Officer for the PGA East as well. She thinks PGA members should get involved because, “If you want to help define the way our industry moves forward, you need a seat at the table.” When Jackie is not working her magic for the PGA, she is a producer and line producer who likes to mix it up among formats. She recently finished an indie film and is currently prepping a narrative comedy series for Adult Swim.
