From the Local President
I hope this finds you well and ready to tackle another holiday season. Your elected delegation and officers attended our second national convention and national board meeting the first week of October. It was an opportunity for newly elected officers, delegates and staff to meet each other, share ideas and most importantly, learn about and participate in the governance of our union. And I'm happy to report that after some anticipated and some unanticipated challenges, things are working even better than many expected. Our campaign to recapture non-union commercial work has been very successful, resulting in more work for our members and the re-signing of several ad agencies to our agreements and, you may have noticed, we've embarked on a social media campaign to organize performers at Droga 5, a New York-based global ad agency. Feel free to drop them a digital line voicing your support for union performers.
On the home front, our new conservatory program is underway with a Pro Tools tutorial and a voiceover workshop that was conducted in our SAG-AFTRA studio. We'll soon be holding a "how-to" on filming your own audition and hopefully a focused casting director workshop. If you have any ideas for things you'd like to participate in, please let us know.
Our annual Christmas caroling will be here soon. So, please watch your email for the date and time, then join us and get your holiday on!
Happy holidays in solidarity,
