Paris Barclay has been re-elected as president of the Directors Guild of America. 

Barclay was chosen for a two-year term at the guild's convention, held at its Los Angeles headquarters. The guild's delegates also elected a new slate of officers and members to the national board of directors.

"I’m honored to be reelected president of the Directors Guild of America," Barclay said in a statement. "We continue to advance a vision first conceived by masters of our craft nearly 80 years ago, and while our mission remains the same, we’re part of an industry and world changing at the speed of light."

The two-time Emmy winner was first elected as DGA president in June 2013, becoming its first African-American and openly gay president.

Barclay has directed episodes of numerous TV series, including Sons of Anarchy, The Good Wife, Extant and Glee.
