Annual Meeting Recap

The Annual Membership Meeting was held on Thursday, January 24, at Cox Media in North Phoenix. A big THANK YOU to our host for the use of their facility and a tour following the meeting. Upon arriving, members were able to pick up their copies of the 2013 Arizona Production Guide. Great BBQ was provided by Famous Dave's. Guests included Phil Bradstock of the Phoenix Film Office and Barry Aarons, the Lead Lobbyist for this year's tax incentive bill. Mr. Aarons and Mike Kucharo gave everyone an overview of the new tax incentive bill that was just introduced in the current legislative session. Directory Chair Larry Niemi asked for input on whether or not APA should try to continue a printed version of the Production Guide, and short questionnaires on that subject were completed by most of the attendees. A Q&A and announcements ended the formal meeting, which was followed by networking and socializing.

Members who were not able to attend will receive their copies of the 2013 Production Guide by mail in February.
