For the past year, she served as first vp while also producing the fourth annual Governors Awards in December.

Boone Isaacs currently heads CBI Enterprises, where she has consulted on such films as The Artist, The King’s Speech and Precious. She previously served as president of theatrical marketing for New Line Cinema and before that executive vp worldwide publicity at Paramount Pictures.

Lasseter, chief creative officer at Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios and a governor from the short films and feature animation branch, previously served one-year terms as treasurer and as secretary.
