vendors, membership and contributing to organizational strategy. "Having
witnessed its growth from 13 members meeting in a basement to the now 320
member strong organization with close to 300 films to their credit, I am
pleased to have been a part of this rapidly growing organization, contributing
to its early shape and growth. I am especially gratified to have helped
conceive and produce the first corporate sponsored (Mellon Bank,) DGA screening
event, now annual."
