Do you have questions about the Actors’ Equity Association, but don’t know who to ask? If you’re an Equity member or membership candidate who lives outside of the New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago areas, check out one of these upcoming membership meetings for actors in your region to learn more about what the 100-year-old stage actors’ union can do for you.
