Television Academy Organization Overview
Each of the nearly 20,000 members of the Television Academy belongs to a Peer Group that represents their professional specialty. There are 31 of these Peer Groups.
Each peer group has two Governors, elected by their members for a two-year term.
The Governors select a Peer Group Executive Committee (PGEC) from members of the Peer Group to consider matters of interest to the Peer Group and advise the Governors.
The Executive Committee is comprised of five elected Officers (Chair and CEO, Vice Chair, Second Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer), plus six Chair Appointees, four Governors' Appointees, and the Chair of the Television Academy Foundation.
The Executive Committee provides top-level insight and strategic perspective for the Television Academy.
The Board of Governors is comprised of all Peer Group Governors and the Officers. The Board meets regularly to transact the Academy's business, including approving the annual operating budget and reviewing changes to rules and awards.
Governors may also be selected to chair one of several Committees responsible for Activities, Bylaws, the Awards Shows, Membership, and other Academy functions.
The Television Academy staff (overseen by the Executive Staff) manages the day-to-day operation of the Academy's business, including awards, membership, event production, marketing, finance, and more. The staff are responsible for acting on the vision and direction of the Board, implementing initiatives and programs under the Board’s guidance.
