GIAA members can join AEA after a year How to

First, give us an idea what day you want to go down there. It is possible to do by mail, but you get the temporary card that day and can start auditioning if you go in person. When you know which day, Send Mara ( current secretary treasurer ) an email that morning and wait for her to get back to you. She needs to send a FAX that you are a GIAA member in good standing. and get the confirmation they received it. The reason for the timeliness is Equity has different people stationed at the desk The initiation fee for AEA is 1100 ( 1450-350 you paid GIAA ) you must pay at least 400 up front the rest can be paid on time within a year. http://www.actorsequity.org/membership/howtojoin.asp bring yourself to 165 West 46th Street, 14th floor New York

GIAA meeting and reading 7/16 post-DPE ( was 4As) meeting

Do NOT "Reply" see email below if you wish to respond. Earlier in the day, VP Carson Grant was the first GIAA member to attend. Due to another appointment, I showed up shortly late.I discussed hard copy printouts and handed those off to Elaine L. at the GIAA meeting later. We read a play written by Sean Devney. Most members in attendance had a chance to read. After the DPE meeting, Carson is trying to coordinate schools to use professional actors for the sake of better productions as well as security related to terrorism possibilities with unknown foreign crews. I am sure there will be more about this at a later date. One point that was mentioned that members can keep an eye on in the news is cable TV executives who take advantage of new graduates to go non-union and pocket the difference causing hardship for workers. There was a similar net effect mentioned for a $100 million movie that brought in a french director and all his supports as DGA responses. I am copying this to our blog giaaus.blogspot.com you can email me at carlofiorletta@giaa.us Thanks. Happy Summer. CF
