USITT Winter Symposium will be January 17th-19th.
The coordinator, Rusty Cloyes, has given Local 205 a 3 hour time slot on Saturday, January 18th, starting at 1pm to give a presentation. Ben Adams from the IATSE Education Department will come and give the Union presentation to college students (about an hour of the time) and then 205 will cover the rest of the time. Things to be covered: A brief overview of how to get work with the union here, what is expected and safety issues. If you would like to help teach the class please contact sister Michelle Ferrier at isou…@aol.com
From Sister Ferrier:
“Finally – any of us that are not working during the event (USITT) have been invited to register, pay the fee and attend any of the sessions. Preregistration fee is $60 (this includes the $5 USITT Membership fee). ”
**A couple of notes:
The 2014 USITT Conference & Stage Expo will be held in Ft. Worth this year. Member registration is cheaper than non-member registration.
USITT membership cost for an individual is $108, $162 for a professional. If you can or are able attend any of the Winter Symposium here, the $60 registration fee is a substantial discount.
