”What You Need to Know About Your Agency Contract Before Signing It”
Don’t Miss this SAG General Services Agreement Seminar, Tuesday, May 12, 2009
What: SAG National Agency staff will hold an educational seminar on general service agreements, or GSAs (i.e. the contracts that ATA 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 their agents have provided them. We urge all SAG members to attend.
When: 12-2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 12, 2009 (RSVP required*)
Where: James Cagney Board Room (ground floor), 5757 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036
Free validated parking (enter lot off of Curson Avenue)
Who: The seminar will be conducted by the National Director and Senior Counsel of Agency Relations, Zino Macaluso, and the Senior Agency Manager, Xochitl Cerda. Only members with valid SAG ID cards will be permitted entry. No exceptions will be made.
