Hollywood Members: ”What You Need to Know About Your Agency Contract Before Signing It”

Hollywood Members: ”What You Need to Know About Your Agency Contract Before Signing It”

Don’t Miss This SAG General Services Agreement Seminar
Tuesday, November 29, 2011
 
What: SAG National Agency staff will hold an educational seminar on general service agreements, or GSAs (i.e. the contracts that some agents have been using to represent our members instead of the standard SAG agency contract). These GSA contracts are signed outside of SAG’s protection, and it is imperative that members have a working knowledge of what these contracts say before signing them—your professional future and your income may depend on it. This educational seminar will be especially helpful to any member having trouble making sense of the complicated legal language contained in the contracts that their agents have provided them. We urge all SAG members to attend. The event will not be taped.

When: 7 p.m.,  Tuesday, November 29, 2011 (RSVP required*)

Where: Screen Actors Guild
James Cagney Board Room (Ground Floor)
5757 Wilshire Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90036

Parking will be validated. 

Who: The seminar will be conducted by the National Director/Senior Counsel of Agency Relations Zino Macaluso and the Senior Agency Manager Xochitl Cerda in Los Angeles. Only members with valid SAG ID cards will be permitted entry to this event. No exceptions will be made.  We strongly encourage all members who attend to bring a notepad and pen with them to these meetings. 

*RSVP: Performers interested in attending should immediately email the Guild’s agency mailbox at agentquestion@sag.org. Please write SAG GSA Seminar—Reservation in the subject line.  Only those members who have received confirmation emails from SAG may attend, so please act quickly as seating is limited.

Questions about upcoming events should be directed to the SAG Agency department at (323) 549-6745.  Any performer who has to cancel a reservation is asked to notify SAG immediately so that members on the waiting list may be contacted.

We look forward to seeing you at the event!
