Candidate statement: Chris Simmons

Candidate for Executive Board

I have been a member of 839 for 5 years, this is my first time running for office.
Our union is unique among the IATSE guilds. We aren't grips, our artists telecommute, work as 1099 contractors, or work from boutique houses that fly under the IATSE radar. If I'm elected to the board I want to work with IATSE to find a way to extend our benefits to those working in these situations. A presence at Siggraph and VES would be good too. The industry has changed in the last 15 years. We need to change with it.

Here is the 2010 candidate slate.
