MCA-i, formerly known as ITVA, brought tens of thousands of people together for professional education and inspiration to be the best in a highly competitive and ever-changing industry. The fate of MCA-i is part of a trend of traditional non-profits trying to adjust to a shift in member needs as more professionals are working as freelance independents, a proliferation of 'film schools' creating their own networking opportunities, and online 'education' of techniques that traditionally were learned from meeting with more experienced professionals.
Many of the local MCA-i chapters were robust and many live on as new, independent organizations, including the LA/OC chapter, now known as SoCal Media Pros. You can find this list of remaining chapters at www.mca-i.org and find industry blogs, the ability to showcase your videos without cost, and networking opportunities at www.RoundTable.Media
RoundTable.Media maintains the list of reorganized chapters, as a public service, in appreciation for the talented men and women who made ITVA and MCAI the success it was for some fifty years.
