SDSA Members keep on Zoomin'
We broke Zoom!
Well, not really, but we did hit our chatroom capacity of 100 attendees for the first time at the June 11th General Membership Meeting hosted by the SDSA Business Members.
Members from Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Toronto and Chicago all zoomed in to catch-up with each other and to hear updates from SDSA Businesses Members on the status of their doors opening for business and new COVID-19 safety protocols.
And then we did it again!
The July 9th GMM hosted by the SDSA East Coast chapters again hit the
100 attendees ceiling! There were members logging off so others could log on!
Third time's the charm!
The SDSA Zoom chatroom was upgraded to hold a larger crowd
in time for the July 23rd GMM. No one was turned away!
Mark your calendar now for the next General Membership Meeting! August 13th, 2020
Look for the invitation with Zoom log-in info in your email inbox, coming soon!

We mourn the loss of Leslie Ann Pope, who died May 6, 2020 with her beloved husband Doug Fischer at her side, at her home in Venice, CA. She was recovering from heart surgery.
A much in demand Set Decorator, Leslie worked on more than 50 projects and was Oscar nominated for her work on Seabiscuit, winning the Excellence in Production Design Award from the Art Directors Guild for Catch Me If You Can, and Avengers: Endgame. She was a member of the I.A.T.S.E. United Scenic Artists, locals NY #829 & #52, and LA #44 and NABET local #15 and was an honorary Kentucky Colonel.
Her husband Doug wrote, "Leslie was full of life, so her passing before her time feels like an insult to the natural order of things. She was one of a kind, you really had to know her. I did, and though she’s gone now, she’s in my heart, held, cared for and safe, forever."
