I hear time and time again that members are not receiving dues notices, election information or mailings. Sometimes this is because, in our busy society, with people moving to new locations, changing email addresses and switching phone numbers, the last people we think to notify is the union. SAG-AFTRA cannot keep you informed if we cannot reach you, so it is important that when your contact information changes, you contact your local and request a Member Contact Update Form. 

You can contact the local directly or you can update your information online by logging in to your member account at SAGAFTRA.org. It is extremely important to also send your new contact information to AFTRA H&R or SAG P&H, because if you are not notified that a health premium is due, you could lose your coverage. 

In order for you to receive timely, relevant updates, the office needs current mail, phone and email information. When you make that move and/or change numbers, please try to remember to let SAG-AFTRA know where you can be reached. This request will only cost you a few minutes of your time, and will save you money and keep you informed of what’s going on. It is crucial that you keep your contact records up to date, as it could cost you in earned income, and so that we can better serve you.  

Thank you for your cooperation and do keep in touch.

Message from the President

Tom Murray

Welcome to the first edition of the SAG-AFTRA Missouri Valley Local’s newsletter.

The Missouri Valley Local encompasses a large region representing a wide variety of performers and newscasters from all over the state of Missouri, parts of eastern Kansas, parts of eastern Nebraska, parts of southern Iowa and parts of southern Illinois. 

With a strong tradition of television and radio reporting, as well as an emerging film industry, the Missouri Valley Local strives to help grow opportunities for our members. We put a lot of miles on our odometers traveling between St. Louis, Kansas City and all points in our territory, but it's worth it to maintain and develop the quality of life for our members.

Tom Murray
Missouri Valley Board President
