DGA elects panel chairs

Barclay, Brown, Schultz elected to African-Advisory committee

The Directors Guild of America’s African-Advisory Steering Committee has elected Paris Barclay, Reginald D. Brown and Michael Schultz as co-chairs.

The panel, which was organized in 1994, also named Roy Campanella II, William Allen Young and Victor Webb as alternate co-chairs.

Barclay, who is the first African-American elected to a DGA vice presidency, said the AASC co-chairs plan to reach out to the more successful DGA members to become active on the panel and to assemble an advisory board of prominent DGA members.

“We have a great many supporters in the Guild, and we’ll be looking to them to advise us on an ad hoc basis on what are the best ways to create more diversity behind the scenes,” he added.
