Stanley joins DGA’s ranks

Elizabeth Stanley, who has been the longtime administrator of the Directors Guild-Producers Training Plan, will join the DGA on March 10 as a new assistant executive director.

Stanley’s initial responsibilities will be to help organize independent filmmakers and to monitor equal employment opportunities for DGA members.

Her move to the newly created position is one of a series of moves made by Jay Roth since he became national executive director in 1995. He also has created new DGA departments for communications and public affairs, credits administration and industry research.

DGA officials say the appointment of Stanley will allow it to expand its efforts with independent filmmakers.

Kate Tilley Carroll, a graduate of the program and a member of the board of trustees, will replace Stanley as administrator of the Directors Guild-Producers Training Plan. The plan operates several educational initiatives of the DGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers, including the assistant directors training program.

Stanley became administrator of the plan in 1987, and she also oversaw DGA contract administration. She shifted fully to the training plan in 1993.

Her experience also includes work for the Service Employees Intl. Union, the Los Angeles Business Labor council and the UAW-Labor Employment and Training Corp. Among her endeavors: to secure state money for IATSE Local 659 and the Contract Services Administration Trust Fund to re-train film camera operators in video camera operation.
