Structure

Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) members include the "seven big" Hollywood studios:

MGM was an MPAA member until 2005, shortly after Sony Pictures Entertainment's failed attempt to buy that studio. Other, smaller studios and distribution companies that are not members of the MPAA avail themselves of the association's rating and title registration services.

From 1966 to 2004, Jack Valenti was MPAA president and strongly associated with the association because of his long tenure and high public profile. Valenti retired on 1 September 2004. Dan Glickman, a former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, now serves as the MPAA chairman and chief executive officer. On 22 September 2005, Glickman named A. Robert Pisano as chief operating officer and president. Kori Bernards is the MPAA's corporate communications vice-president and principal spokeswoman.
