4 • LMGI COMPASS | Winter 2023 L E T T E R FROM THE PRESIDENT "DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK, I BEEN HERE FOR YEARS..." LL Cool J had it right, back in 1991. Looking back at 2022, it's easy to see that though society, as we remember it, has made a comeback, the LMGI has continued doing what it can to fulfill its mission statement: to promote awareness of our place in the entertainment industry as indispensable creative collaborators. We've had several stellar regional events, a few global Fam Tours, full-capacity industry panels and some amazing educational outreach programs. It's been great having such opportunities come our way, assisted by our business partners, international colleagues and film commissions. We participated in another successful FOCUS trade event in London. The visitors to our booth were non-stop. With many of our members in attendance from both sides of the Atlantic, we were able to network with our current business partners and many eager potential collaborators. So many want to work with us to help promote their destinations, as well as aid the LMGI with training and education. It was an amazing event, and we hope it will lead to many more opportunities in 2023. I ask that you please make sure and update your member profiles and sign up to participate on our committees. They provide a critical sounding board for all our ideas as we decide what we want to accomplish as an organization in the years ahead. We are very much looking forward to celebrating the LMGI's 20th anniversary this year. It's remarkable to think that what started as a dream by dedicated location professionals in Los Angeles, has evolved into a Guild that is recognized worldwide. Please be on the lookout for more details and send us any ideas you may have for celebrating this milestone! On behalf of myself and the entire Board, I wish you all the very best in the year to come.
