Dear Convention Delegates,
I want to personally thank you for attending the inaugural SAG-AFTRA convention. Many of you traveled from distances near and far to be a part of this historic event. It was a pleasure to speak with so many of you and to witness a great democratic process unfold as our delegates elected new officers and voted on important proposed Amendments and Resolutions.
We all offer a hearty congratulations to our newly elected National Officers: Gabrielle Carteris, Clyde Kusatsu, Mike Hodge, Ilyssa Fradin, David Hartley-Margolin, Robert Newman, Catherine Brown and Dan Navarro. I know that our union is stronger with the support of these exceptional leaders.
I hope that you will continue your SAG-AFTRA involvement by attending our union's events and membership meetings, through committee service and by participating in upcoming Wages & Working Conditions meetings (W&W's), which form the bedrock of our important contract negotiations. I look forward to working with all of you as we continue to build our great union.
