Officer Position Statements:
USITT is expanding in many diverse and exciting areas. I will, as President, work to serve our membership by being a strong steward of our assets.
Besides the annual conference, there are many year-round growth opportunities for membership. Currently, we offer USITT Presents, the Rigging Safety Initiative, the Costume Symposium, The Electrician Master Class, Elite Training, the Jay O Glerum Master Classes and ESET, but there is still room for growth and the inclusion of new learning experiences. I will work to continue this expansion.
The Diversity Initiative is an important area of growth for both us and our industry at large. The Institute should work to introduce this initiative at or before the high school level. Outreach and follow-up are important, and I will work to see that its continued growth is supported.
I will always encourage corporate sponsorship to support the work of our institute and aid in funding, among other things, member education, outreach and diversity.
USITT is a strong and vibrant organization, of which I am proud to be affiliated. I am a strong believer that the Institute benefits from increased volunteer and leadership opportunities for all members. Our membership is what keeps us strong. I am excited to be a part of the team that will make USITT's future a success.
I am very much looking forward to being part of the team that will ensure the success of USITT's future
