On May 8, local members gathered for our semi-annual membership meeting held at Maggiano’s Little Italy Restaurant in Washington, D.C. Members had the opportunity to submit questions about the union, ranging from how to bring more film work to our region to questions about meal benefits and national policies for working on set during extreme temperatures. SAG-AFTRA staff worked diligently to collect all of the member questions in advance and gave brief individualized presentations to answer member concerns.
