Review for United States Institute for Theatre Technology Inc, Syracuse, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Giving to USITT and why it is important. www.usitt.org You would think writing a letter about why I support USITT financially would be easy. In fact, it is. Through my work on the conference committee and now as on the board, I have discovered what an amazing organization USITT is. It is a forward-thinking and leading the industry in safety, rigging, innovation, training, and diversity. I believe in USITT. I believe in the mission. I believe in the quality of programming and training opportunities. I believe in the positive effect it has had in my students' lives and careers. It has opened their eyes to the variety of options for careers, solutions for technology or creative challenges, and the benefit to networking. I believe it is the membership of USITT that makes it such an amazing organization. It is through the generosity of so many people (many of whom who are incredibly humble about their professional accomplishments) who are approachable by individuals of all levels that makes this institution unique and worthwhile. I am proud to support an organization that promotes a lifetime of learning at all levels whether it be the New Century Fund or Diversity Initiative investing in the future professionals of the industry or the Edward F. Kook Fund that invests in research or the Rigging Safety Initiative to provide training and inspections in schools across the country.

Review for United States Institute for Theatre Technology Inc, Syracuse, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is incredibly difficult to articulate how important this organization is to me. It provides me, a mid-career professional, with stimulating training and a vast network of more than 5,000 people in the theatre & entertainment industry. As an educator, I can draw on my experiences with USITT as well as the accomplished professionals I have met to create stimulating lessons and utilize web-conferencing to facilitate conversations with professionals.
