PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - September 2017
Dear Members and Friends,
We are all still reeling at the passing of Pattie Daly Caruso, but as Denise and many others have so eloquently stated this is a transition, and we shall carry the light and love of our dear friend with us always.
Our Welcome Back Networking Breakfast is going to be fantastic and I encourage you to make the effort to be there. Not only will we learn about the new Film Studies Program at COD, we'll learn a whole lot about how SAG-AFTRA works for youth, new members, returning members and those thinking about being a member - and for Producers as well. All of it good knowledge! The President of SAG-AFTRA Los Angeles will be speaking...come on, that's awesome! Plus the Executive Director and their contracts gal; if you've got questions - BE HERE!
Plus the PS Hospitality Association is on hand to not only sponsor many of the COD students attending, but meet their potential new hires! The COD Culinary students have a fabulous menu they are preparing - so be prepared to enjoy a treat!
Bettina Breckenfeld, from the Riverside County Film Commission, will be on hand to introduce the Film Commission to the students and attendees to what's happening in the county - and after the SAG-AFTRA presentation we will open the floor for Q&A.
We are so excited about our BGA line up of honorees this year and we are already filling up seats - so please lock down your tickets, tables and Ad's!! It's November 6th, which is coming up quickly!
We're asking EACH member (and anyone else) to please gather AT LEAST one Silent Auction item for the BGA - and mail it into the PSWIFT office. Restaurants, Spa packages, Hotel packages, Trips, Baskets - all of this works and has value! The monies raised from the Auction goes to our Scholarship and BookPALS programs. We sincerely thank you for making this effort!
We have wonderful Sponsor Packages available - so please see Patti Gribow for all the information! The Sponsor monies also go to fund our Scholarship Program and our BookPALS Program, now in its Tenth year!
We have several new members and we welcome all of them along with all our guests that come to check us out! Please reach out and welcome them all!
Stay tuned in with our Newsletters - we have lots of great things coming up!
Thank you all for your support!
