Each year the membership of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Michigan Chapter elects new professionals on a rotating Board of Governors to represent the Michigan community. While best known for The EMMY® Awards and Silver Circle, which recognize outstanding achievements in our industry, NATAS Michigan represents an array of other exciting events available to our membership.
The Michigan Chapter is in search of people who are as passionate about media as they are about giving back to the professional community. The Board of Governors is a working board, which simply put, means we work together collaboratively to ensure we are providing for the best interests of the membership.
