The International Cinematographers Guild announced Saturday that Steven Poster, ASC had been re-elected for another term. Poster, who first won the guild’s presidency six years ago, ran unopposed, as did three of the six other national officers he supported.
The officers running unopposed were vice president Lewis Rothenberg, 1st vice president Paul Varrieur and sergeant-at-arms Michael St. Hilaire.
In the contested races two-time Academy Award winning cinematographer John Toll, ASC won re-election as second vice president as did incumbent national secretary-treasurer Alan Gitlin. Assistant national secretary-treasurer Bruce MacCallum won the most tightly contested race.
“It’s time to put the slates behind us and unite to fight for the interests of all members. The guild and our parent body, the IATSE, are facing unprecedented attacks on our staffing, wages and working conditions,” said Poster. ”I am looking forward to working with every one of our elected board members to create a strategy that will train our members for the jobs of the digital future and establish new levels of membership service.”
National executive director Bruce Doering will continue in his role at the ICG.
