Students and Faculty!!!!

October 8, 2019

Hello Students and Faculty!

The board of USITT Chesapeake would like to know what types of programming you would be interested in attending!  We are asking you to put on your thinking caps and come up with an event – workshop, lecture, session – on something you would drive a few hours to attend.  We would ideally like to do this in an area central to our region.  There are no silly ideas, so don’t be afraid to suggest something.  

In 1960 when the national organization started, it’s purpose was to “promote dialogue, research, and learning among its practitioners”.  Now with the existence of the regional sections, we can bring more helpful, learning events closer to those in our regions.

We are eager to put together programming that will be beneficial to you, and to get you involved in our section.  Please submit you ideas to me at jastein@vt.edu.  We look forward to hearing from you!!

Sincerely,

Jeremiah Brophy
