Welcome to the Los Angeles Local!

We are the largest local in the union and pride ourselves on the resources, support and programming we provide to members. The Los Angeles Local holds classes, workshops and seminars for singers, stunt performers, actors, broadcasters and dancers. Only in L.A. can you attend an open board meeting with elected member leaders, watch a screening with a live Q&A from the cast and get hands on craft-based career experience all in the same week! As you navigate through our site, be sure to check out the Los Angeles Conservatory, SAG-AFTRA Film Society, local events and member orientation. If you haven’t attended an orientation, make sure you do—it’s a great way to learn about everything the union offers!

We hope that as you familiarize yourself with the site, you will find access and answers to all of your burning questions. If you don’t find what you are looking for; let us know, we are happy to help.

Keeping the membership first,

Pat Richardson, President
Frances Fisher, First Vice President
