Under the leadership of Chabin, the Council includes Michael Benson (chairman, Promax/BDA, senior vice president marketing ABC Network), Steve Kazanjian (chairman BDA, DZN) , Stephen Arnold (president, Stephen Arnold Music), Lee Hunt (Lee Hunt LLC) and Michael Levine (president, Michael Levine Search Consultants).

Magid Associates), Jeff Pryor (CEO, Priority Public Relations), Chuck Ross (publisher/editor, Television Week), Scott Siegel (president, R S Owens) and Mark Stroman (partner, Entertainment Marketing Partners) are the other members of the Council.


Along with promoting networking opportunities, this Council will be active in addressing issues facing creative companies; participating in active discussions; advising conference planners on topics and speakers; and participating in a regular series of informal gatherings designed to build better, more personal relationships. Additionally, the Council will actively seek out and solicit new Promax/BDA memberships.
