    MPA members have been working  since January 2017 on a framework to use in the development of legislation for the film industry. We are looking at what did not work in previous versions and what can work. 

    Now, a committee has been formed including  Vendor David Haddad,  IA leaders Joe Miller and  Stacia  Savage, community members Karla Murray, Christos and Tom Moisides  Teamsters from Detroit and Grand Rapids and several more folks.

    Right now our IATSE - FIRM PAC group has a website with basic info and bullet points... Legislation has been drafted. for details.

    MPA has spoken to the sales team at Kramer Tools and they told us they are coming to MI with a trailer loaded with the latest equipment for classroom and events. They will be at two Detroit area locations October 3rd and 4th during the day.  MPA encourages you to visit and ask questions!

    Here are the details:

    The Kramer showcase features a fully-immersive technology exhibit trailer full of cutting-edge audio/visual and collaboration technology.  We’ve hosted thousands of visitors through the showcase thus far, and we’ve found it to be most helpful for those involved in researching, selecting and/or managing audio/video & IT collaboration technology for their organization.  Specifically, the Tour showcases the latest and greatest in Ultra-HD/4K displays, interactive displays and whiteboards, audience response systems, digital signage, video projection, video conferencing, presentation and collaboration solutions, wireless technology, technology management, etc.  It can also be quite useful for those interested in using technology to enhance sales and marketing efforts.

    The events are free, each session lasts about 45 minutes (sessions are the same and start at the top of every hour), and provides a personal and casual atmosphere which is great for asking questions and learning about new technology.  Sessions are limited to approximately 10 people per hour.

    To register for a time slot for an event, please follow one of the REGISTER hyperlinks below.  Please also feel free to forward this along to colleagues in your organization as you see fit.
