The Joint Policy Committee on Broadcast Talent Relations (JPC) is the multi-employer bargaining group that negotiates the collective bargaining agreements with the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists that govern the employment of actors who perform in television and radio commercials.  In its role, the JPC represents the interests of advertisers and advertising agencies throughout the United States.  SAG and AFTRA represent the interests of the actors.

The JPC invites you to take part in a very important on-line survey that will assist the JPC in determining which provisions in the current collective bargaining agreements are of concern to the people who work with and under the agreements day-to-day.  It is the JPC’s hope that there will be widespread participation in the survey across all aspects of commercial production, from casting to trafficking.  And if you’re an actor, the JPC welcomes your participation as well.  This is the first time the JPC has sought such information, so everyone’s participation is extremely valuable.

Any personal information provided by you in completing the survey will be held in strict confidence, and will not be disclosed to any third parties or used for any purpose other than compiling the data.  Nor will you be personally identified in any communications with third parties with any answers you provide.  And at any time, you can decide not to complete the survey or can request that the JPC remove any personally identifying information you’ve provided.

The entire survey takes about one to one-and-a-half hours to complete, but it can be done in sections.  That makes it easier to complete at your leisure.

If you’d like to participate, the JPC needs your full name, email address, and, where applicable, your company’s name.  Simply send an email to Ms. Leah March at with the requested information.  Leah will then send you an individual invitation. 

The JPC greatly appreciates your participation. If there are others who you feel should participate, please ask them to provide their full name and email address to Leah March ( so Leah can send them a formal invitation.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.
