In my last newsletter I asked that we all look for ways in which  we might help each other through the challenging times we areexperiencing.
 As we approach the 66th Quadrennial Convention of this great Alliancethat message continues to resonate. We will come together in Conventionsession to act on a number of issues that will take us forward in unity by focusing on our common goal of always keeping the best interests of ourmembership in mind. As we do so, we must reflect on the past, evaluate thepresent, and consider the future. With that as our main focus, we must adopt a shared vision for the futureby identifying specific goals that we strive to attain, a vision that reflects thebroad body of work to be completed and each project or initiative to beundertaken. With all that we are facing both domestically and internationally on theeconomic and political fronts, our industry is facing challenges and so far isremaining relatively healthy. While multi-national corporations operating in the entertainment industry have their own financial problems, we can take pride in the fact that ourmembers have brought entertainment to millions of people looking forescape and a little hope.In the early years of the IA, movies were a cottage industry, televisiondidn’t exist, and theatre was finding its way out of the vaudeville tradition.Today, control of almost all media is held in the hands of a few conglomer-ates that own not only motion picture studios, but television productioncompanies, legitimate theatres, theme and amusement parks, arenas, andeven newspapers and television stations, not to mention the companies they control that are outside the entertainment industry, but that contribute totheir profit margins. It is ever so evident that many of our crafts are dealing with the same employers over multiple contracts and various media, present-ing new challenges to us on a regular basis. We must, therefore, cometogether even more, share information across craft and geographic lines, allthe while respecting the autonomy, heritage and uniqueness of each Local. We must adapt so that our structure strengthens our ability to succeed onbehalf of the members and never let our adversaries use it to divide us. We must also plan for changes we will face in the future. We will contin-ue to support worker-friendly legislation. We will continue to organize every- where we can. And above all we will do our best to make certain that ourmembers always come first.
By Organizationand Mutual Endeavor
Due to the fact that the 3rd QuarterIssue of the Official Bulletin will focus onthe highlights of the 66th Quadrennial Con-vention, the regular departments will besuspended and will return in the 4th Quar-ter Issue.
EDITOR’S NOTE:
Please remember that in order to com-plete the final registration process, all del-egates must present their original [whitecopy) credential at the registration office.
