Actors' Equity Association, the national labor union representing more than 51,000 professional actors and stage managers in live theatre, has announced that Executive Director Al Vincent, Jr. has been elected as a voting member to the Board of Directors for the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans. The International Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to education and research about professional benefits for workers in the U.S. and Canada. Vincent will serve a two-year term, effective immediately.
"The International Foundation works tirelessly to make sure that workers get the most out of their benefits," said Vincent. "As a labor union, we know that benefits like health insurance, retirement savings and pensions are hard-won, and I look forward to working with the International Foundation to ensuring these crucial elements of worker compensation are within reach for as many working people as possible."
