DGA Membership Meeting in New Mexico

New Mexico Meeting 2023

October 21, 2023

On October 21, DGA members who work and reside in the region attended a membership meeting and dinner in Albuquerque, New Mexico. More than 50 members from all over the territory came to network with their peers, meet DGA staff, learn what the Guild is doing to protect and extend their creative and economic rights, and talk about the issues relative to working in the area.

Following a welcome from 1st AD/Second Alternate Board Member Chemen Ochoa and UPM Brent Morris, DGA Assistant Executive Director Faith Santilla spoke to the attendees about the current state of the Guild and its activities, including a report on the new Basic Agreement and FLTTA and the successful conclusion of the recent commercial negotiations. Field Representative Alexis Soto, who is newly responsible for covering the area, introduced herself and welcomed the opportunity to learn about issues specific to the local area as members contributed to the discussion during an open forum section where questions were addressed, and comments welcomed.
