Spotlight on Giving

I Believe in USITT

Tammy Honesty

Through my work on the Conference Committee and now on the Board, I have discovered what an amazing organization USITT is. It is forward-thinking and leading the industry in safety, rigging, innovation, training, and diversity. I believe in USITT. I believe in the mission. I believe in the quality of programming and training opportunities. I believe in the positive effect it has had in my students' lives and careers.

I am proud to support an organization that promotes a lifetime of learning at all levels whether it be the New Century Fund or Diversity Initiative that invest in the future professionals of the industry or the Edward F. Kook Fund that invests in research, or the Rigging Safety Initiative that provides training and inspections in schools across the country.
