Under the leadership of MPAC's Founder and Executive Director Entertainment
Attorney Jalene Mack, its management team, administrative staff and board
of directors, MPAC is dedicated to the formation of avenues into the
professional world of entertainment through several programs.
I realized I had invaluable knowledge as a business woman, entertainment
lawyer, playwright, producer and actress, and having a circle of high
profile clients and industry colleagues ranging from all facets of
performing arts, it gave me resources most often times out of reach of
others. This was the opportunity to give back to my community, expand the
growth of the performing arts industry, and make dreams come true.
