New York -- Actors’ Equity Association, the national union representing more than 51,000 professional actors and stage managers in live theatre, has named Regina Mincey-Garlin the new assistant executive director for finance and administration, effective January 1, 2022.
"I am proud to welcome Regina to Equity’s executive leadership team," said Mary McColl, executive director of Actors’ Equity Association.

As the theatre industry continues to reopen, Regina’s guidance will be invaluable."
Equity’s assistant executive director for finance and administration is responsible for driving union-wide fiscal and technological strategies, including managing the budget and overseeing the organization’s investments and other assets.
"I am truly honored to join Equity, a storied institution whose dedication and commitment to its membership spans generations," said Mincey-Garlin. "It is a privilege to have an opportunity to contribute to an organization whose values of equality and cultural preservation align with mine.
"Sharing my financial and membership management experiences while exchanging ideas with a talented team of professionals is exciting. I believe that I am joining at a seminal moment. I look forward to working with the team and contributing to the excellent work that has made Equity the industry leader it is today."
