David A. Goodman topped Carl Gottlieb for the VP slot, currently held by Rodman. Aaron Mendelsohn was elected without opposition to the secretary-treasurer post, currently held by Gottlieb.
Incumbents Billy Ray, Carleton Eastlake, Ari B. Rubin and Patric Verrone won board seats along with Meredith Stiehm, Andrea Berloff, Mara Brock Akil, Luvh Rakhe and Zak Penn.
Verrone is best known for leading the WGA during the 2007-08 strike. Ray won a WGA award for the “Captain Phillips” screenplay.
Akil is the creator and executive producer on “The Game” and has producing credits on “Girlfriends,” “Cougar Town” and “The Jamie Foxx Show.” Stiehm is executive producer on “Homeland” and has credits on “The Bridge” and “Cold Case.”
Penn has story credit on “The Avengers” and wrote the script for “X-Men: The Last Stand.”
Berloff wrote the screenplay for “Straight Outta Compton.” Rahke is a producer and writer on “New Girl.”
The WGA West has about 8,000 members and jointly negotiates with the WGA East on the guild’s master contract with producers. That deal expires on May 1, 2017 — so the campaigning for this election has focused on the need to prepare for those talks.
Current WGA West president Chris Keyser is precluded by guild rules from seeking a third consecutive term.
Rodman is in his second term as VP and has been active in guild politics for more than a decade with screen credits on “Joe Gould’s Secret,” “Savage Grace” and “August.” He’s also a professor and former chair of the writing division at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and an artistic director of the Sundance Institute Screenwriting Labs.
