The continued growth and success of our Guild depends upon the support and commitment of all our members. The Producers Guild of America East will be having elections this spring for our Executive Committee. This is a separate election from the PGA National election; PGA East members in active status can run for office in both elections.

Over the next five weeks, the PGA East Nominating Committee will be meeting to discuss possible nominees to run for the positions of PGA East CHAIR, VICE CHAIRS, FINANCIAL OFFICER and MEMBERS-AT-LARGE. These positions on the PGA East Executive Board have two-year terms and are limited to two consecutive terms. The Executive Committee is comprised of the PGA East Chair, two Vice Chairs, seven Members-At-Large, the PGA East Financial Officer and the Chair Emeritus.

The PGA East Executive Committee

1) The Executive Committee is the governing body of PGA East and is composed of eleven (11) elected and voting officers residing in the PGA East region, plus one ex officio, non-voting office (Chair Emeritus). All Elected Officials must be PGA members in good standing. Only the Elected Officials shall vote in matters of governance of the PGA East.

2) The Executive Committee makes policy for the PGA East under the Constitution and By-Laws of the Guild, maintains and effects the day-to-day operations of the PGA East including supervising the office and office employees, interns and volunteers, oversees expenses, and approves the budget submitted annually to the Guild.

3) All members of the Executive Committee are expected to participate in PGA East initiatives, duties, and planning throughout their term. Members are also expected to attend the Annual Meeting and participate in all Executive Committee meetings and projects.

4) Members of the Executive Committee work to further the goals, ideals, and vitality of the PGA East. They also represent the interests of the organization’s diverse membership.

5) The Executive Committee meets with the PGA East Advisory Board at least four times a year. Chairs and Co-Chairs of each standing committee constitute the Advisory Board, in addition to the immediate past PGA East Chair and Vice Chairs and the nationally elected officials who are members of the PGA East. The role of the Advisory Board is to work with the Executive Committee by providing advice and coordinating activities of the PGA East.

The Chair, along with the Financial Officer, has signing power on official/legal documents as well as bank accounts, and can authorize all spending within the parameters set forth by the By-Lawss and Constitution. The Chair may initiate or terminate organization efforts, projects, or committees with the support and consent of the Executive Committee when appropriate. The Chair chairs the Annual Meeting.
