Bill Sapsis Intimate 90 Minute Online Session


Members are invited to join Bill Sapsis for an intimate 90 minute online learning session. Event will take place on July 21st, 2020 at 10am.

Bill Sapsis announces a new training program that is social distancing compliant. There’s much more information available on the internet now that most of us are in quarantine.

These webinars are great but the information they provide tends to be general in nature and doesn’t always meet the specific needs of an organization or company. This is where Bill Sapsis can help.

Bill will bring his 45+ years of experience to your video screen for live discussions with you and your staff and crew on issues that address your specific concerns and the needs of your operation. Unlike a traditional webinar where you are lost in a sea of faces on a screen, this event will be limited to 20 participants and the content will be based on questions submitted beforehand from those registered.


Please RSVP to Tom Haughey thaughey@wcupa.edu by July 17th with your registration request and questions for Bill Sapsis.

Thank you

USITT Rigging Safety Initiative Deadline Nov 15, 2015

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.
