The Writers Guild of America, West is on track to have new leadership this fall following the news that the guild’s president, Howard Rodman, will not seek re-election. Deadline.com reports that Rodman is expected to be succeeded by David Goodman, who is currently the organization’s vice president.
“Rodman has served one two-year term as president and was eligible under guild rules to serve another, but chose not to,” Deadline reports. “The guild’s nominating committee selected two candidates to succeed him, but only Goodman accepted the nomination.”
The report adds: “Marjorie David, a WGA West board member, has been nominated to succeed Goodman as vice president, with an unnamed candidate declining to run against her.”
