Strong organizations are led by strong Boards

SMA Leadership

Our Board is led by dynamic leaders of the live entertainment community, elected by the professional membership. Elections are held annually beginning the third Monday in April and the new board begins its term on July 1. All Professional members of the association are eligible to vote and to hold office.

Board members serve as volunteers on rotating two- or three-year terms. The Board currently meets online 10 times a year; at the Annual Meeting of the membership each June; and as issues dictate. The work of the Association is undertaken by our active committees dedicated to achieving our fundamental missions: to recognize, educate, gather together and advocate for members working in the entertainment profession.
