LMGI COMPASS | Fall 2019 • 13 Due to his excessive workload on his latest project, location manager Matt Palmer has resigned from the LMGI Board after serving a successful three- year stint. Palmer was responsible for including the LMGI in the "Leadership on Location" event with industry partner, the Directors Guild of Canada BC District Council, Creative BC and the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of British Columbia. As a Regional Membership Committee Co-chair, Palmer was instrumental in spreading the Guild's message in Vancouver resulting in the LMGI's robust membership growth in this region. Palmer commits to continued active leadership in western Canada, including both our business partner campaign and membership drive. Stepping into these well- worn shoes, charting his own course is Atlanta- based LMGI member Ryan Schaetzle, who already serves on our Regional/ International Committee and Membership Committee. Schaetzle hopes to make a positive difference, advocating for continued membership growth of qualifi ed professionals in southeastern US. He also sees a great value in the continuing education of our membership, be it online or classroom/panel events. "The next generation," Schaetzle comments,"is the future of location management." He adds, "I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on the LMGI Board. I appreciate the strides being made to elevate our profession worldwide. I look forward to working with fellow Board members to promote membership and awareness of the Guild." The LMGI is grateful to Matt Palmer, welcoming his continued involvement, and Ryan Schaetzle—such a gratifying feeling to have such a qualifi ed member waiting in the wings to step up and make a commitment to the Location Managers Guild International. Our thanks to you both, and to all our hardworking dedicated volunteers!
