The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts, IATSE LOCAL 479, will be our host for our April Meeting.

Michael W. Akins with IATSE Local 479, will give our welcome.

For those of you who may not be familiar with IATSE’s history: It was founded in 1893 when representatives of stagehands working in eleven cities met in New York and pledged to support each others’ efforts to establish fair wages and working conditions for their members.

Today, the IATSE members work in all forms of live theater, motion picture and television production, trade shows and exhibitions, television broadcasting, and concerts as well as the equipment and construction shops that support all these areas of the entertainment industry.

MEETING LOCATION: 4220 International Pkwy #100; Atlanta, GA 30354


FEATURED SPEAKER: Jeff Stepakoff – Executive Director of the Georgia Film Academy (GFA).

A collaborative effort of the University System of Georgia and Technical College System of Georgia, GFA is supporting local workforce needs of the film and digital entertainment industries. The academy will certify workforce ready employees in needed areas, connect students and prospective employees with employers, and offer a unique capstone experience for top students that will provide them a path to employment in Georgia.
