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). ” http://southwest.usitt.org/symposium.html
**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.
From Jim Larkin, Director of Production at the Long Center:
All – we have identified the afternoon of Thursday December 26 as the next time to have a Basic Fly Rail Class, beginning at 12noon and lasting approximately 4 hours. The Advanced Class and qualifying tests of individuals will occur on Monday, December 30th from 9am to 6pm. Classes and exams will be held on the Meredith Stage of Dell Hall.
There is no limit to the number of participants for the class, but we would like to know how many students plan to attend, so that we can have the appropriate amount of pastries and coffee. The time required for the qualifying exam is dependent upon the number of candidates electing to take the exam.
The Basic Rail Class is a prerequisite for the Advanced Fly Rail Class. The Basic Class covers the environment of fly rail and loading rail, establishes standards of communication, and qualifies individuals to operate balanced loads that have already been installed on the system. The Advanced Rail Class provides instruction and qualification on the operation of the rail with unbalanced loads during a load in/out. Both the Basic and the Advanced classes are required prior to taking the test that fully qualifies an individual as an approved fly rail operator at The Long Center.
Please confirm participation with Frank Cortez. Email only; no phone calls please.
