The Dallas Producers Association is a professional organization providing promotion, advocacy, education and networking for our membership. Membership is open to any company or individual of high standing working in the production of visual media in North Texas.




The Dallas Producers Association was founded by a group of six Dallas based producers with a goal of sharing best practices, knowledge, and to advocate for production in Texas.

Non-Profit Incorporation

The DPA was officially incorporated as a 501(c)6 non-profit. This launched the DPA from a small group of producers to a legitimate organization able to support producers all over the DFW area.

Production Inclusivity

After a historic vote, the DPA by-laws were amended to be more inclusive of all production oriented roles seeking membership. The goal of this vote was to support a wider audience to production professionals in our ever more connected world.
