South FL Members Meet

President Nick Wyman was on hand for the South Florida General Membership Meeting on January 14, 2013 at the Plaza Theatre in Manalapan. The meeting followed a meet-and-greet in the lobby of the theatre, with light refreshments provided by the Liaison Committee.

Topics discussed included the SETA negotiations, the upcoming LORT negotiations, and the status of the Equity Building in New York. There were also questions on the effect of the Affordable Care Act on members' health coverage, as well as regional business, such as the IATSE strike at the Kravis Center, the closing of several South Florida theatres, and the realities and consequences of Equity actors working non-SAG-AFTRA jobs. Also discussed were plans for the upcoming Equity Centennial.

Both Dave Corey and Barbara Sloan were up for another term on the Liaison Committee and decided not to return because of other commitments. New member Renata Eastlick volunteered to serve, joined by Patti Gardner. The other members whose terms were expiring remained on the Committee.

Thanks to Dave Corey and Barbara Sloan for their service and to Renata Eastlick and Patti Gardner for stepping up and joining the Liaison Committee. Thanks, too, to President Wyman for attending; to Alan Jacobson for the use of the theatre; to the members who turned out; and to the members of the Committee for their time and commitment: Barbara Bradshaw, Oscar Cheda, Beth Dimon, John Felix, Wayne LeGette, Margery Lowe, Margot Moreland, Marj O'Neill-Butler, Laura Turnbull and Tom Wahl.
