The application period to become an HCA member is now open and will remain active until April 30, 2021. “While our organization is hoping to keep most of its membership within California, we are willing to expand outside of the state for ideal candidates,” adds HCA Co-Chair Ashley Menzel. “Our initial plan was to keep the organization strictly California-based; however, after multiple members moved during the pandemic, we have decided to expand our membership reach. We are opening our application process to entertainment journalists and critics within the United States, but those members will make up no more than 20% of the total HCA membership.”
