We wanted to pass along the results of the Advisory Referendum for the current AEA 99-Seat proposal. Here’s the email sent out by Equity.
Also, don’t forget that we’ll be releasing the results of our 99-Seat Business Model Study (in conjunction with TPLLA) on Saturday, May 16 at LA STAGE Day. Tickets are available now at the early bird price (through May 1).
The ballots for the 99-Seat Proposal Advisory Referendum have been tabulated. We have already shared the results with the National Council and we will be posting the results on the member portal shortly.
As I promised, here are the results of the vote count:
Total number of ballots sent: 6,990
Total Number of ballots returned: 3,141
Percentage of eligible members voting: 44.6%
Total Number of invalid ballots: 20

I AM IN FAVOR OF THE EQUITY COUNCIL’S PROPOSAL FOR 99-SEAT THEATRES IN LOS ANGELES

As you know, Equity’s National Council will meet on Tuesday, April 21st. The results of the Advisory Referendum vote provide important information to the Council as they consider the 99-Seat Proposal and intimate theater in Los Angeles. Council will take into account the percentage of members who voted, the number of votes cast and the results, as well as the information that you have shared with Council over the last several months.
Thank you for your participation in this referendum.
