From a press release:
The Screen Artists Co-op presents two days that will change the lives of those desiring a professional acting career in film and television. Starting on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 6:30 p.m., SAC hosts a Q&A session with Atlanta Agent Alexander White.

He will also be in attendance at the SAC Open House, which takes place on Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 6 – 9 p.m. Participants must be 16 years or older.
During the Q&A session on Sept. 17, Mr. White will meet with a small number of actors who would like to be considered for representation by the Alexander White Agency in Atlanta, GA. Those in attendance will get an opportunity to meet Mr. White and learn more about the services his agency provides. Space at this event is limited and interested actors are urged to reserve a space by contacting Jessy Boswell by email (email@example.com) or phone (828) 808-2468.
On Sept. 18, SAC will welcome actors of all levels at an Open House, starting at 6 p.m. This will be an opportunity for the public to learn about the training and services SAC offers to actors including: classes, audition taping and head shots. During its first year of existence, SAC actors and their work have received a growing amount of acclaim in the southeast region’s professional film and television industry. Participants must be 16 years or older. More than 18 SAC actors have agents, including 10 members of the very first class, and several have booked roles in films and television shows. SAC mentors and actors will be in attendance to share some of their personal experiences and success stories.
The Screen Artists Co-op is an organization of film industry professionals in western North Carolina whose mission is to train and mentor actors, and sharpen their tools to make them more competitive. Actors of all ages and backgrounds have come to SAC to train, many who have had little to no professional television or film experience. With 70 percentage of SAC actors working on a range of projects, many have begun work on sets within months of beginning courses as SAC. Founder Jon Menick and SAC’s dedication to creating a community of resources and opportunities for actors of all experience levels have attracted beginners to lifelong professional actors and performers.
