New members represent the future for SAG-AFTRA. The stronger they are, the stronger our union and all members are. The goal of the New Members Subcommittee of SAG-AFTRA Chicago's Community Outreach, Community Organizing (COCO) committee is to get new members actively involved in our union - volunteering, voting and learning - as early as possible.
The New Member Orientation event is just one part of the process. Topics covered include every step involved in the union experience - from initiation fees and the dues structure to the correct way to execute member reports and contracts. Other areas include agents and commissions, casting directors, resolving claims, health coverage, set demeanor, committees, staff, etc.
New member orientations are not just for new members! Whether you joined yesterday or have been a longtime member, all members in good standing are welcome. Plan now to attend the next New Membership Orientation and stay informed. The next orientation is at noon, Wednesday, Jan. 23. Please call the SAG-AFTRA Chicago office, (312) 573-8081, or email Natasha Beals at Natasha.Beals@sagaftra.org to reserve your spot.
