How Does AGMA Work?

AGMA is an entirely democratic and open union, governed by its members.

All union officers are artists chosen through elections in which every member in good standing is eligible to vote.

The Board of Governors, the governing body of AGMA, is responsible for final approval of all contracts, management of union funds, and for protecting all members from unfair or unsafe practices and conditions. Any active member in good standing is eligible to run for a seat on the Board. Elections for the Board are held in three-year cycles and elections of all officers are held biennially.

AGMA is a National Union, without a system of locals. To assure democratic representation, however, AGMA does have a structure of geographical areas for service on the Board of Governors. Many areas elect a Local Area Committee and an Area Chairperson. Members are encouraged to attend area meetings and other local area functions during the course of the year. A member's area is determined by their primary address on record at AGMA unless he or she designates a different area based on their pattern of employment. Within each area, the

composition of the Board of Governors is based to date) for each of the following categories: Actor, Stage Manager and Stage Director.
