PLASA's elections to determine positions on its European and North American Regional Boards, as well as its central Governing Body, have now ended.
Companies and individuals from PLASA's worldwide membership voted in the elections, which were conducted via a secure online poll.
There were four positions available on the European Regional Board. Martin Hawthorn of AV hire company Hawthorn's is re-elected to a second term as treasurer and Mark Surtees of Outback Rigging successfully retains his position as production services representative. Noreen O'Riordan of Entec Sound and Light becomes the new rental company representative, while Steve Macluskie of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland will begin a second term as the organisational representative.
Five positions were up for election on the North American Regional Board, with Scott Hoyt of Heartland Scenic Studio elected as treasurer, while David Schraffenberger of Production Advantage and Tracey Cosgrove of Rosco Laboratories took the dealer and manufacturer representative positions respectively. Jules Lauve of Theatre Projects Consultants was chosen for a second term as the professional services representative, and the final place on the board is now occupied by Marc Stephens of MPS Studios Dallas, who will represent rental companies.
The Governing Body elections focused on filling a single 'at large' position voted for by the combined Business and Organisational memberships. Individual member, John McGraw, successfully maintained his position, and will continue working with Steve Terry of Electronic Theatre Controls and John Simpson of White Light as the three 'at large' members who sit on the Governing Body alongside the chair, vice chair and treasurer of each Regional Board.
All the candidates will commence three-year positions on their respective Boards – formally taking office from January 1st 2013.
