Join Jessica Maher, Executive Director of SAG-AFTRA New England,

for this Ask Me Anything WIFVNE Networking Wednesday

In this special "Ask Me Anything" Networking Wednesday event, WIFVNE member Jessica Maher of SAG-AFTRA New England will answer your questions about SAG-AFTRA.  

Jessica will provide a general overview of SAG-AFTRA and discuss such topics as 

  • How to become SAG-AFTRA eligible and then a union member
  • SAG-AFTRA union benefits
  • Working with SAG-AFTRA union members, for big budget projects and micro-budget projects (it's possible!) 

Prior to this event, WIFVNE recommends that members update their Member Profile in the Member Directory, so connections can become collaborators! 

Jessica Maher is the Executive Director of SAG-AFTRA New England and has been with the union in various roles since 2008 after previously working for AFTRA/SAG Boston in the late 1990s. Her recent attention has been on contract enforcement, member education, and set safety while guiding the local through the 2023 TV/Theatrical Strike. Jessica currently serves as a board member of the Massachusetts Production Coalition and played an important role in the elimination of the sunset of the Massachusetts Film & Television Tax Incentive which passed in the summer of 2021. Prior to her return to the union, Jessica worked for the PBS science series NOVA. She is a graduate of Northeastern University’s Music Business program and lives in Quincy with her husband, Tom, and three sons.

This conversation will be moderated by WIFVNE Board member Jaci Kjernander.  Jaci is an award-winning actor, producer, writer, and director. Her latest film, "Between Floors," is currently making its festival rounds and can next be seen at the Boston International Film Festival on Saturday, April 13th. A champion for inclusivity, Jaci's films are almost entirely crewed by WIFVNE members.
