LOS ANGELES, Calif. (January 13, 2022) – First Entertainment Credit Union, the premier financial partner to creators in the entertainment community, has renewed its sponsorship with the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences (SOVAS™). This sponsorship is part of SOVAS’ programming development, connecting voice actors to educational and employment opportunities in order to sustain a successful career in the voiceover industry.

“We have always been strong advocates for the furthering of education and mentoring of members in the entertainment community,” said Addie Allison, Chief Experience Officer. “Supporting our members and helping them achieve their financial goals while in pursuit of their professional aspirations is at the heart of everything we do. We are proud to continue our sponsorship with SOVAS and look forward to helping them provide even more opportunities to our entertainment family.”

In 2019, First Entertainment began supporting SOVAS’ mission of connecting working voice actors to sources of training, education, mentoring, and employment opportunities. Through this continued sponsorship, the credit union looks forward to helping SOVAS elevate the art of voice acting as a recognized craft and important element of media communications. 

“Modern day voice acting is a robust entrepreneurial pursuit, where the voice actor’s focus on performance craft is as critical as money management,” said Rudy Gaskins President and CEO of SOVAS.  “The voice actor benefits greatly from First Entertainment’s support and understanding of their unique business needs. It makes all the difference.”
