Board of Directors for 2018-2021:

Ashley Bellet

Verda Beth Martell

There are a total of 18 Directors on the Board, one-third of whom are up for election each year.

Elected Officers for 2018-2021:

Kim Scott

Vice-President for Members, Sections, & Chapters:
Andi Lyons

Vice-President for Exhibitions:

The elected leadership provides direction to USITT’s future, and the Board class of 2021 is drawn from a broad spectrum of membership with experience in academia, for-profit, not-for-profit, and other sectors. “The USITT Board of Directors are charged with the responsibility to advise, govern, oversee policy and direction, and assist with the leadership and general promotion of the organization. Directors are elected by the membership and serve a three-year term.” Congratulations to those elected!
