Why should I become a Upstate Member

USITT is a membership-based organization. Membership will help you advance your knowledge and skills, and provide you with networking opportunities, information, and conferences. ​ The true value of membership, as in all associations, is in the opportunity to share information and ideas and to build community through participation. Members of USITT Upstate New York Regional Section work together to grow in their craft and create educational opportunities designed to bolster the entire professional community in our region. More tangible benefits include: Members receive newsletters detailing regional news, opportunities, and events. Members receive invitation and access to regional functions such as facility tours, roundtables, workshops, master classes and mini-conferences in Upstate New York. ​ As a Note....Being a member of the national organization does not automatically make you a member of the the regional section. Also, you may be a member of the regional section without becoming a member of the national organization.
