Membership Directory Offers New Features
The Membership Directory Committee continues to add improvements to the membership directory system:
• Members can now customize the order that their “Job Skills” and “Areas of Skills” appear in. From the drop-down menu, select all that apply, then simply drag them into the order you want them to be in.
• Field added for members who have an FCC Low Power Auxiliary Broadcast (part 74) License.
• The directory database will now retain all submitted information if a member has a break-in-service. It won’t be part of the active list during the time someone is removed from membership, but once reinstated; all information will be restored to the active database. Previously, all information had to be resubmitted once a member was reinstated.
Remember, you can update your directory information 24/7, 365 days a year by logging in to www.local695.com.

Tax Credit Program Advances with AB 2026
A bill to extend California’s Film and Television Tax Credit Program by five years cleared a hurdle when AB 2026 passed out of the California State Legislature’s Arts & Entertainment Committee. The bill is co-authored by Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes, who also led the passage of the program’s one-year extension back in October. It’s a tough sell as Sacramento grapples with continued budget shortfalls but a Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation study reported that the program generated $3.8 billion of economic activity in its first two years.
