SFCC Hosts 2017 Annual General Membership Meeting

April 29, 2017 A San Francisco Coordinating Committee Event

On April 29, the DGA’s San Francisco Coordinating Committee (SFCC) welcomed members from all categories to the 2017 edition of their Annual General Membership Meeting and Reception. Bay Area Guild members assembled at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel, where SFCC Chair John Morse welcomed the attendees and introduced the event’s special guest, DGA Associate National Executive Director Russell Hollander, who will succeed Jay D. Roth as the Guild's National Executive Director this May.

Hollander was there to deliver a briefing on the state of the Guild and what the DGA is doing on behalf its members, which included an overview of the newly negotiated agreements with the AMPTP. He also focused on what was most relevant for members living in the Bay Area such as changes to the newly negotiated Commercial Agreement that will enable Bay Area members to find more work, and touched on what’s next for the Guild.

After Hollander’s briefing, DGA Field Representative Gabe Kahsay gave a report from the national office. Other reports included a list detailing the productions occurring in the Bay Area given by SFCC member Janice Goto, a look at possible upcoming educational events from Education/Mentoring Sub-Committee Chair Jani Vournas and member Lope Yap, and a discussion  of upcoming screenings from Screening Sub-Committee Chair Frank Zamacona.

The official business concluded with the nomination of candidates for the SFCC Executive Committee.
