A total of 1,434 ballots were returned, out of 8,986 mailed out – a turnout of 16%, which is one percentage point lower than last year.

“Voting is one of the most essential parts of unionism,” Heim said in a statement. “Thanks to all the members who exercised their democratic responsibilities, and congratulations to all the folks who will be starting board service or are returning for more. It is our honor to serve our 9,000 members in post-production and across all job categories.”

Seven newcomers have been elected to the guild’s 52-person board. They are Ashley McKinney, Emma DuPell, Gavin Segall-Abrams, Meg Reticker, Dr. Erin Michael Rettig, Nicole A. Fletcher and Matt Klimek.

Several long-time directors, meanwhile, will be exiting, including Morgan, Sidney Wolinksy, Robert L. “Bubba” Nichols, Craig Eustis, Damian Begley, John Morris, Joe Birkman, and Frank Delgado Jr.
