Message from the Local President

Jane Bower

Last year was a banner year for SAG-AFTRA Michigan, as our local stepped up our campaign — as outlined by President Ken Howard — to “educate, engage and empower” members across the state. Over the past year, the SAG-AFTRA Michigan Local has offered members numerous opportunities to hone and enhance their skills at workshops featuring industry giants in voice acting, audiobooks, commercials, live announcing, casting and animation. We were proud to welcome the SAG-AFTRA Foundation to Michigan to produce one of the daylong workshops.  

The SAG-AFTRA Michigan Local was enthusiastically represented at Detroit’s annual Labor Day parade. We were also well represented at the SAG-AFTRA 2015 National Convention in Los Angeles. In addition, our Coffee Connections continue to serve as a national model. Empower yourself! Look for one at a coffee house near you in 2016. 

Jayne Bower

President, Michigan Local
