USITT Regional Sections

USITT's Regional Sections stimulate the exchange of ideas and information among those within a specific geographical area. Regional Sections and their volunteer leadership have strong ties to the overall USITT organization, which grants them charters, but are independently run organizations. Regional Section activities can include masterclasses, tours, exhibitions, and competitions. Individuals and organizations can join and participate in the activities of more than one section in addition to USITT.

Interested in forming a new section in your region? Download and read the Regional Section Formation Guidelines before contacting USITT, for an application.
