The International Cinematographers Guild's new national executive director is the first woman in a largely male-dominated industry to hold the position, it was announced Monday.

Rebecca Rhine's appointment is effective effective Dec. 1, according to Steve Poster, president of ICG, IATSE Local 600, which represents 7,700 members working in film, television and commercials as directors of photography, camera operators, visual effects supervisors, still photographers, camera assistants and other camera crew members, film loaders and publicists.

Rhine will succeed Bruce Doering, who is retiring from the guild after a 30-year tenure. He will depart at the end of December to assure a smooth transition of duties.

For 8 1/2 years, Rhine has been executive director of the Municipal Executives Association, which represents managers in the city and county of San Francisco.

Prior to that, she served as Northern Area Director of SEIU Local 1000, a union representing more than 95,000 California employees.

From January 2002 to September 2005, she was assistant national executive director of AFTRA, involved with national oversight of public policy and strategic planning. She also served for more than 10 years as executive director of an AFTRA/SAG Local in San Francisco.

Working with the National Executive Board and officers of the ICG, Rhine's responsibilities will include negotiating and administering the guild's local agreement with  major producers and supervising a full-time staff of 50.

The first cinematographers union was established in New York in 1926, followed by unions in Los Angeles and Chicago, but it wasn't until 1996 that Local 600 was born as a national guild.

ICG's ongoing activities include the Emerging Cinematographer Awards and the Publicists Awards Luncheon and publishing ICG Magazine.
