The Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter (then called the Phoenix Chapter) was founded on September 1, 1959.
In those seven decades, our members have been well served by a group of distinguished and hardworking professionals.
Each year the Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences accepts nominations for the prestigious Gold & Silver Circle Society. The inductions take place at the annual Rocky Mountain Emmy® Awards Gala.
The Silver Circle recognizes individuals who have served in the industry for a minimum of 25 years, with the majority being spent in the Rocky Mountain Southwest region. Individuals selected for induction have done more than work professionally for 25 years. They are the best and brightest in our business. Ideal candidates will also have extensive public service, mentoring, leadership and professional accolades.
The Gold Circle recognizes similar individuals who have served in the industry, with the majority in the Rocky Mountain Southwest region, in an exemplary fashion for a minimum of 50 years. Most importantly though, is the contribution to the profession and to the community that the individual has made during that time.
