Richard Young member of the Toronto Film Industry

Richard Young


MONEY and HEALTH. Both are essential for the marathon of a performing career and are what my focus will be. ACTRA has resources/associations for financial assistance/management, RRSP's and health benefits ... but they are confusing and not promoted well. Combining my MBA with my ACTRA experience (current Toronto/National Councillor, Ontario ACTRA Census co-spearhead, former Co-Chair of YEAA and served on Diversity & Conference committees) I will make it simple for members to take advantage of these financial/health initiatives. Better marketing, education, and customer service, all to EMPOWER YOU. Because when you have your finances and health, you can focus on your art!
