President’s Message

David C. Farmer 

Aloha Brothers and Sisters:

The President’s Task Force on Education, Outreach and Engagement was just one of the many important initiatives led by our late and beloved SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard, not to mention his leadership role in bringing about our merger. We will miss him.

New President Gabrielle Carteris has hit the ground running by reaching out to all 25 locals’ presidents to engage them in meaningful activities and initiatives related to governing our union. We are pleased to have Gabby attend our Hawaii Local annual membership meeting this coming Sept. 26. Please come and give her a warm aloha!
