Yes, the VPA has been successful in the last legislative session. No, our work here is not done. In conjunction with Advantus Strategies, we managed to pass a revenue producing bill. Considering these economic times, that was huge.
Now we have the opportunity to continue the process as we move forward to the elections this fall. We will be electing a new governor, and that means we’ve already begun talking with candidates about their views and their needs. They need volunteers no matter which party they are from.
That’s where you come in.
Speaking for myself and Terry Stroud (VPA Chairman and past president) and Advantus, we strongly suggest you check out the various candidates now and then knock on the door of the campaign that suits you best. AND when you do, please make sure to make it clear you are a VPA member (if you are not yet a amember, please join!) and work inside the film industry so they know later that we played a great part in their success. As Terry Stroud said, it’s a great way to develop a lasting relationship when the candidate is elected.
So remember, no pressure here. Just a suggestion to see if you can volunteer. Thanks for considering this activity on our behalf!
