Executive Board - SAG-AFTRA
(310) 633-0615

SAG-AFTRA is the national professional actors’ union, representing approximately 160,000 members.  This union was the result of years of effort to unite the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, something that they accomplished in 2012.  The New Mexico branch of SAG-AFTRA has elected representatives constituting a local board with a member on the National Board of Directors plus a president, two vice-presidents, a secretary-treasurer, and members at large.  This board addresses local issues as well as having involvement in national issues such as contract negotiations, worker set and safety issues, and organizing.  Across the board, both the national and local boards fight to secure the strongest protections for media artists.
