Dear Local Officers,
On Tuesday, July 27th, 2021 an introductory video presentation was shown to the delegates to kick off the 69th Quadrennial Convention. The opening video reflected on the resilience, activism, and solidarity of our alliance throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ending with the introduction of the theme of the 2021 Convention, Together We Rise.
International Representative D. Joseph Hartnett and 1st International Vice President Michael J. Barnes, Co-Directors of IATSE Stagecraft Department, recommend that all IATSE members take advantage of online courses available through “Safety First!” For information, sign into this web site.
