Mission Statement

Nevada Conservatory Mission Statement

The Nevada Conservatory’s mission is to prepare our new members for employment with the industry while assisting working professionals in continuing to develop their talents and skills.

GOALS

To achieve our mission, the Conservatory will assist actors in building careers through

  • the enhancement of their performance tools;
  • enrichment of their business and marketing knowledge;
  • providing networking and learning opportunities;
  • encouraging experienced performers to share their knowledge;
  • producing workshops, seminars and symposiums of relevance to the professional actor;
  • encouraging qualified union membership and participation, and
  • communicating the SAG-AFTRA constitution, regulations and bylaws.

Additionally, the Conservatory may include secondary services and activities such as showcasing talent, student film participation, trips to regional and national casting centers or notifications of productions, auditions and other industry related services.

While the Conservatory invites active participation by agencies, production companies, acting teachers, schools, organizations and members, their participation in any event is not to be taken as an endorsement.

The Nevada Conservatory is open to all members of the community as a public service, but as a committee of SAG-AFTRA the right is reserved to limit participation in specific events or overall membership to dues current members of the Union. Membership in the Conservatory does not represent or imply membership in SAG-AFTRA.

The Nevada Conservatory is not an employment service, agency, casting center, union hall or any related business or activity. We are an opportunity to learn, share and network!
