We need you to join us in Annapolis to take the message directly to your legislators of the importance of the film and television industry in Maryland! It makes a difference when your representatives in the Maryland Senate and House of Delegates hear directly from their constituents as to how we are affected by the current incentive program in the state. We need you to tell them how having these productions have positively affected your life and what it would mean to have more work in the state.
This invitation is being extended not just to SAG-AFTRA members but those of IATSE, the board and members of the Maryland Film Industry Coalition as well as businesses who work with these shows.
There is currently no bill that needs to be passed this session but we shouldn’t let them forget that the bill passed last year needs proper funding to ensure the industry grows and remains vibrant.
There will be union staff representatives who will be able to direct you to your legislators and we’ll have flyers you can leave with the senators and delegates when you stop by their office.
By showing up in their offices these elected officials become more aware of our presence and our support for this all important industry in Maryland.
Please join us in Annapolis on the 15th and show our support for the industry that supports us.
