Equity currently employs over 130 professional and support staff employees throughout its four office cities. The staff is responsible for handling the day-to-day business of the Association and its members.
Executive Director Mary McColl is responsible for the overall implementation of national policy, contract oversight and negotiations, and communication with our members and the public. Steve DiPaola is charged with oversight of Equity's national finances and overall administration.
Three Regional Directors oversee the contract business representatives in each of their respective offices and regional areas. This team of executives, working together with the National Council, the Regional Boards and the members of Equity's dedicated staff, is responsible for making recommendations to the governing bodies regarding policy, financial, and contractual issues.
The single largest group of professional staff members consists of over 35 Business Representatives. Supervised by six Senior Business Representatives, the business reps are the staff members with whom producers and working members deal on a day-to-day basis. Their duties include answering questions and interpreting agreement provisions, enforcing and administering all work rules, negotiating with employers, and handling all manner of member claims, grievances, and disputes.
