Radford University is hosting this year’s annual Virginia Thespian Conference January 29th and 30th, 2016 and we’re looking for a couple of folks to be the face of USITT in the region. If you’re interested, email Jeremiah at email@example.com and I’ll get you some details.
Applications for the next funding cycle are due November 15, 2015. Previous applications not yet funded will be retained & automatically considered in the next cycle.
The RSI is open to all secondary schools (middle schools and high schools) nationwide. Once a school’s application is approved, they choose from a list of participating ETCP certified rigging inspectors in their area. USITT pays the inspector directly for the inspection and four to six hours of safety training for faculty and student stage crew. The only cost to schools may be the inspector’s travel and housing — if necessary — and any special equipment such as a lift to access the system.
