Visitors, have we had visitors! Usually, only USITT staff members hang around the office in Syracuse as we move into our pre-Conference build-up. This year, however, we were rolling out the welcome mat almost constantly.
President Bruce Brockman flew into snowy Syracuse from icy Oklahoma, and spent a delightful day in a series of discussions about everything from projects to post cards. He also announced a change in office duties, with Carol B. Carrigan assuming the post of Office Coordinator.
The office staff was also pleased when Jack Nettleton and Strand Lighting's Peter Rogers dropped in to say hello. Although it was a brief visit, Membership & Ad Sales Manager Michelle Smith was able to give them a comprehensive tour. Mr. Rogers was in the area and was kind enough to say he's been curious about USITT's facilities.
An even briefer visit took place a week later, when Andy McArthur of ECCS, Inc. in Las Vegas, Nevada stopped in to drop off a logo as part of the sponsorship package for the 2004 Stage Expo Nosh.
