President’s Message – February 2019

As President and National Councillor for Manitoba, I am extremely proud of the excellent talent and services we provide for Manitoba’s burgeoning film industry. ACTRA Manitoba represents over 600 Full, Apprentice and Additional Background members, with our elected Council of 10 directing policy, member services, budgetary decisions, training, special projects and social activities.

In addition to our full-time Branch Representative, Rob Macklin, we now have two part-time staff working diligently on our behalf: Julie Penner, Administrative Assistant, and most recently, Liz Quesnel, Steward.

I urge all members to continue to look out for each other on set and in auditions and classes, and to make use of staff services when required. Keep yourselves up-to-date with ACTRAonline, AFBS and PRS; be aware of all the membership benefits ACTRA offers.  Also, check out our new pamphlet: RESPECT ON SET. ACTRA Manitoba is leading the way for respectful and productive working conditions for all.

I hope to see many of you at our upcoming member events: MIP Night on April 12 and our next AGM/Election in early June. All full members are welcome to run for Council – please contact me if you are interested! 

Jan Skene

ACTRA Manitoba President

2018 – Happy 60th ACTRA Manitoba – Happy 75th ACTRA National
