About

SAG-AFTRA's National Convention is boldly going where it has never gone before: into cyberspace with an all virtual event, Oct. 15-18. Fittingly, this year's theme is "Virtual, Vital, Visionary," bringing elected convention delegates together from our 25 locals for a forum to shape the union and elect its top officers.
