Congratulations to these newly elected Board members, who join Nigel Daly, Gary Dartnall, Bryony Foster, Paul Heller, James Knight, Maxine Leonard, David L. Simon, Paul Steinke and Rosalie Swedlin to form the 2012 BAFTA Los Angeles Board of Directors.
BAFTA Los Angeles thanks Clare Baren, Katy Haber and Julia Verdin, who have served their maximum three consecutive terms, and David Garfield Roland, John Alan Simon, and Brian Walton who will vacate their positions as Board Members. All six retiring Directors have made significant contributions to the ongoing success of BAFTA Los Angles, and we recognize that our organization is stronger for their years of service, commitment, energy, and wisdom.
Turnout was just over 50% and the election was supervised by the Election Oversight Committee co-chaired by Gary Dartnall and Katy Haber.
