If you're working in the animation industry in the Los Angeles area you're most likely a member of The Animation Guild. The Guild is the only union for animation artists and it has been plagued with leadership problems for a very long time.

Guild elections occur every three years. They are currently taking place. There's an artist running for a position on the Executive Board. His name is David Gemmill.

For the past few months David has been leading a campaign to reform the union. If he is voted on to the Executive Board of the Guild it will be the first time in decades that the problems within the union can be meaningfully addressed and things can take a turn towards a more positive future for the organization and its members.

If you're in the Guild and haven't voted yet keep David Gemmill in mind when you do cast your vote. Elections wrap up this Friday, November 8 2013. Feel free to pass on the recommendation to others in the union.

Vote for David Gemmill and help bring some much needed reform to the union.
