SCREEN ACTORS GUILD RELEASES CANDIDATE LISTS FOR NATIONAL OFFICERS AND NATIONAL BOARD SEATS

Los Angeles (July 25, 2007)—Screen Actors Guild today released the official list of candidates for its upcoming national officer and national board elections. National president and secretary-treasurer positions are up for election, both of which carry two-year terms. Approximately 1/3 of the total 69 national board seats are open for election this year.

National officer ballots will be mailed to all eligible SAG members nationwide on August 21 with a return deadline and tabulation on September 20. Election results are expected to be announced that evening. The same schedule will apply to the Hollywood and New York division elections.

The candidates for national president are Seymour Cassel, Charley M. De La Peña, Alan Rosenberg and Barry Simmonds. Connie Stevens is running unopposed for the position of secretary-treasurer.

The Hollywood Division will elect 11 national board members and 22 alternates. Each seat is for a three-year term (all national board alternates serve for one year). The New York Division will elect five national board members and nine alternates. Each seat is for a three-year term (all national board alternates serve for one year). Candidates for New York president are Sam Freed, Erik-Anders Nilsson and James Vassanelli.

Directors holding eight other national board seats will be elected from SAG branches outside Hollywood and New York. Information on those elections is expected to be made available in the coming days.
