Guild staff work with the elected Council and interested members to implement a range of initiatives. In just the last year, Guild members have applied for grants to start a writing fellowship programs, hosted film screenings, social events, and professional development courses, and collaborated on initiatives like the Diversity Coalition and lobbying for diversity tax credits in film and television production.

Members also participate in the annual WGAE Awards Ceremony, receive free film screeners, and have the opportunity to join a national community of creative professionals in media and entertainment.
