As a part of SAG-AFTRA’s historic inaugural convention at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE, the union hosted a three-day Information and Resource Expo, Sept. 26-28.
The expo’s first day featured SAG-AFTRA committees, departments, resources and programs available to members in all categories. Days two and three highlighted the union’s numerous ancillary and partner organizations, including the SAG-Producers Pension and Health Plans and the AFTRA Health and Retirement Funds, AFTRA-SAG Federal Credit Union, and the AFM & SAG-AFTRA Intellectual Property Rights Distribution Fund. The expo also featured important information and useful giveaways from SAG-AFTRA’s many convention partners, including The Actors Fund, ACTRA, American Income Life Insurance, Audio Publishers Association, COP Communications Inc., Group Benefits Associates, Liberty Mutual Insurance, the Motion Picture & Television Fund, National Labor College, SoundExchange, Ullico and Union Plus. The Information and Resource Expo also served as a place for convention delegates, staff and guests to network as they learned about the benefits and protections of SAG-AFTRA membership.
