ABOVE & BEYOND - An Auspicious Turn of Events: A New Set of Volunteers Takes The Reins

Posted By Administration, Thursday, June 9, 2016

In this installment we want to highlight our two new Co-Chairs of the PGA’s Events Committee, Carla Mitchell and Joe Morabito. The Events Committee has recently been restructured as a kind of "umbrella committee” overseeing a wide variety of different PGA benefits and opportunities from all three membership Councils. Going forward, they’ll be responsible for everything from the On The Lot lunch program, to Thirsty Thursdays, to Morning Council Mixers, as well as the Guild’s spectacular Oscar Party and Holiday Party.

Carla Mitchell has been involved with not only the Events Committee, but also serves as a member of the Women’s Impact Network and has been a part of the PGA Green Habitat for Humanity Builds. Joe Morabito has been very involved with the PGA Holiday party for the last few years. He also has been a part of the Oscar Recruitment Party, New Member Breakfast events, Casino Night, and the Producers Guild Awards, as well as serving on the AP Council’s Nominating Committee. Between the two of them they make a great team.

Why do these two special members volunteer? Carla says, "If I’m a member of a group, I have to be more than just a‘bench member,’ as my grandmother would say. Being active is the best way to learn more about our industry and to grow as a person.” Joe calls volunteering "a great way to network within the entertainment community and to learn from others working in our field. It is a good way to build relationships with other members and have fun in the process. It’s rewarding to offer your time and expertise to an organization that you choose to be a part of."

Outside of volunteering, Joe is a production manager in different genres and recently wrapped on Celebrity Apprentice; he’s currently working on an extreme sports event for Red Bull. Carla works as a talent producer on many awards and competition shows, as well as working the red carpet as a field producer for Grammy Awards events. It’s the start of a new era for the Events Committee, and we can’t wait to see what Carla and Joe have in store for their fellow PGA members.
