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 David Korduner.

Korduner was there to deliver a briefing on the state of the Guild and what the DGA is doing on behalf of its members, which included an overview of negotiations prep, focusing on what is most relevant for members living in the Bay Area such as changes to production happening in the Bay Area.

After Korduner’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 and local screenings report by Morse and upcoming educational events from Education/Mentoring Sub-Committee Chair Jani Vournas.
