The USITT office is working on a project to improve information flow about programming and exhibitors at Stage Expo, all aimed at enhancing information exchange and the overall 2012 Annual Conference experience.

Look for updates at www.usitt.org/2012 and in member e-mails.

USITT Hotels in Long Beach

People can still take advantage of reduced hotel costs by staying with USITT in Long Beach for the 2012 Annual Conference & Stage Expo. Although the Hyatt Long Beach is currently full, rooms may become available at that facility. In the meantime, rooms are still available at the Renaissance and the Westin which are both very close to the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center.

Book a room online here.

In Memoriam: Marcia M. Busch-Jones

Marcia Marie (Gott) Busch-Jones, 67, of Bloomington, Indiana died December 2, after a long bout with metastasized colon cancer. She was the wife of Ted Jones, and was known to many USITT members because of their travels, including visiting Prague and the Prague Quadrennial three times because of their association with USITT.

She started working for Indiana University in its Office of Publications and as associate professor of fine arts. She became director of the Office of Publications and oversaw its expansion and renaming to IU Creative Services, with Marcia as executive director. She retired in 2009.
