There are three steps to becoming an Equity Membership Candidate:
- Obtain an eligible position at an Equity theater that participates in the EMC program.
- Complete the EMC registration form provided by the producer. (Please note: the union does not provide these forms to individuals.)
- Return the completed form, with the non-refundable $200 registration fee payable to Actors’ Equity Association, to the producer for filing with the union. (Be sure to keep a copy of the completed form and proof of the registration fee for your files.)
Please note: the EMC Program is being phased out, and Equity will stop admitting new applicants to the EMC program effective May 8, 2023.
