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 email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!!
Nominations will be open at Conference for the following positions: First Vice-Chair, Third Vice-Chair, Treasurer, and one Member-at-Large (northern region). For details on these positions, take a look at the bylaws if you’re interested – http://chesapeake.usitt.org/by-laws/
Nominations close April 30 and you must be a member in good standing with Chesapeake to be nominated.
