Denver Membership Meeting

Members Meet, Greet, Seat

By Lindsey Hanahan and Shelly Gaza

Denver Area Equity members gathered for their annual meeting on January 20, 2007 at the Garner Galleria Theatre, housed in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Central Regional Director Kathryn Lamkey presided over the session, attended by more than 30 local members.

The morning began with a meet and greet. Marcus Waterman, Chair of the Liaison Committee, offered a recap of the Committee's successes in 2006. Ms. Lamkey provided an update on the National scene, including information on the new "Memorandum of Understanding" now added to the Business Theatre and Events Contract.

Elections were held to fill vacancies on the Liaison Committee, with five members selected to serve. Joining returning members Lindsey Hanahan (Chair), Steve Grojahn, Kathy Kautz and Heather Rubald are Drew Frady, Shelly Gaza, Jenni Graham, Susan Long and Bruce Monette. A new Action Subcommittee was also formed and members elected to that body are Matthew Campbell, Connie I. Lane, Anne Oberbroeckling, Jennifer Rowe and Katrina Stevens.

On track for 2007 is the second edition of the Guide to Equity Actors and Stage Managers, distributed to producers and artistic directors throughout the state of Colorado. In addition to containing photos and resumes of area actors and stage managers, the Guide gives detailed information and tips on hiring AEA members.

There are now over 220 members in the Denver area, and the Committee is hoping to initiate more opportunities for work and exposure of its members. Some of the action items on the Committee's 2007 agenda include getting theatres to sign onto the Umbrella Contract for small theatres in the area, participating in community fundraising efforts and initiating some Member Project Code productions.
