Local Exec Gets Gold

This year marks the inaugural year for the SAG-AFTRA George Heller Memorial Award. A tradition carried over from AFTRA, the gold card award honors members and/or staff who have gone above and beyond in service to the union. This year, the prestigious award was granted to none other than our legendary Executive Director Patricia O'Donnell for more than 37 years of exemplary service. Watch the ceremony here. National Vice President, Small Locals David Hartley-Margolin also received the award.
