To support these ventures, the SDSA relies on membership dues, corporate sponsors, generous contributions from our Business Members, advertising on our website, social media, and eblast outlets, activity fees, and grants for small business development and educational support.

The SDSA is separate and apart from any labor union and the organization does not represent Set Decorators in negotiations regarding wages or working conditions, leaving this important function to our local unions, including IATSE Local 44 in Los Angeles, Local 52 in New York, and Local 479 in Atlanta.
