Motion Picture Academy Board Approves Annual Full Membership Meetings Going Forward – Deadline


Deadline

At today’s monthly meeting of the Board of Governors the leadership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences presented a new resolution making yearly AMPAS membership meetings official.

Sources tell me the Board enthusiastically approved the resolution that will require annual meetings – virtually and/or in person in L.A. County – of the full membership now numbering over 10,000 + members that will be held in the second quarter of each calendar year (in other words after the Oscar show). It can be virtually or in person as the BOG may designate with the stated purpose being to consider “the affairs of the Academy”.  Members may submit written questions in advance (the President and CEO – currently David Rubin and Dawn Hudson will select a representative sample to be read), and a recorded  version of the presentation  will be posted on the member portal afterwards.

The only caveat is that if the Board deems the meeting cannot be held “conveniently” in the second quarter it shall be empowered to call said meeting at any time within fifteen months after the last Annual Meeting.

Many members have been calling for just such a yearly confab, and to my knowledge the only time in recent memory it was actually done came under former President Hawk Koch’s single year tenure when AMPAS held a full membership meeting on May 4, 2013.  This new resolution makes such a get-together now official. This new resolution came about in part with the Academy engaging in an ongoing strategy more often with general membership during the pandemic of the past 18 months. They have decided to do this on a more regular basis going forward.
