President’s Message – October 2018

Hello, fellow members.

Please RSVP for your free ticket to ACTRA’s upcoming Gala & Awards Evening.  In addition to the performance awards, we are handing out two very special industry related awards.  At a time when our industry is thriving and more of our members are working than ever, I expect this Gala to surpass all others – not to mention we are also celebrating two ACTRA Anniversaries.  We are also offering complimentary tickets to members of IATSE and DGC unions. All tickets include 2 drinks, food and entertainment. Please spread the word. I hope to see many of our members and industry friends out celebrating with each other on Friday, October 12th!

We have had a few changes at ACTRA Manitoba over the last couple of months, one of which is losing our wonderful Toni Reimer from Council, as she has made a temporary move to Vancouver.  We miss her terribly but welcome Cheryl Gensiorek to Council.  Along with Toni we have lost our newsletter, possibly temporarily, but thought it would be a good time to re-evaluate where Council puts its energies and look to our members for what they see to be priorities.  For the time being we will be sending bulletins when we feel we have urgent news for our members.  I would appreciate any feedback members have on whether the newsletter is of value to you.

We have a new staff person at ACTRA Manitoba: We welcome Liz Quesnel as the ACTRA Manitoba Steward.  Liz will be part-time in the office, and, on-set stewarding productions and offering assistance to members in relation to working conditions and contracts.

Finally ACTRA Manitoba’s “RESPECT on SET” wallet cards are now available for our members in regard to maintaining a respectful workplace for all.  Stop by the office to pick up a few to pass around.
