Seek Big Plans
For Houston in 2008
Howdy! It's time for us to discuss what we're going to do at the 2008 Conference & Stage Expo in Houston, Texas. The Costume Design & Technology Commission has to of wrangle up some programming and needs help. If you have an idea for a program that you would like to see, just send the particulars. A project proposal form is on the UISTT website.
Send it by February 19, 2007; that's three weeks before the 2007 Conference & Stage Expo starts in Phoenix, Arizona. It is important it gets done before Phoenix since that's when the Commission votes on the programming in Houston. The Commission realizes that people are all really busy (such as that production of Bat Boy to whip up in five weeks involving a little nudity and a whole lotta blood)—but it does not take long to fill out a proposal form, and it will help make for some fine programming.
Complete details and instructions to submit a proposal are on the Costume & Technology Commission site on the UISTT web page. Look under the section titled "Conferences: Propose a Session." Those who have an idea, but no proposal can e-mail the idea. Suggestions will be posted to the Costume listserv and encourage others who may see it to develop a session.
Those who live in Texas should think about what local programming to offer. There are slots in the schedule for programming coordinated with the region hosting USITT, so make a proposal to your Regional Section.
Program proposals and suggestions for programming can be sent to: Kevin McCluskey, Chair 2008 Houston Conference Programming, Department of Theatre and Dance, University of Mary Washington, 1301 College Avenue, Fredericksburg, Virginia 22401; firstname.lastname@example.org.
