SAG's Pamm Fair resigning

November 20, 2009 | 12:02 pm

Pamm Fair, deputy national executive director of the Screen Actors Guild, is resigning.

Fair, who heads SAG's legislative affairs and communications divisions, will step down by the end of the year, a person close to SAG said.

SAG officials declined to comment on the reason for Fair's resignation.  Fair was among the guild's highest paid staffers and saw her responsibilities grow during the controversial tenure of Doug Allen, the union's former executive director, who was fired by the SAG board earlier this year over his handling of a protracted contract standoff with the studios.

Fair declined to comment.

Update (1 p.m.): In a statement, the Screen Actors Guild Executive Director David White credited Fair for her efforts to redefine the guild's new media initiatives, organizing efforts and legislative advocacy on key guild issues. "Her contributions to the guild have been varied and significant and I thank her for her dedicated service. I know I speak for all of us in wishing her continued success," White stated.
