ChadNorthern Boundary Section supports student scholarships to attend the National Conference each year. Five students from the section will be attending with scholarship support this year in KC. Chad Albert attended last year's conference in Cincinnati and had this to report about his experience:

"USITT national conference 2009 was one of the most amazing theatrical experiences I have ever had.  At first I was a little overwhelmed with the amount of activities to do and people to meet.  The most beneficial thing for me was talking to graduate schools and having my portfolio looked at.  After attending and talking to 10 or more graduate schools I was put on the right path towards my goals.  I got great information on my portfolio and resume.  I could have not asked for more useful input, everyone was very professional and more than helpful.  I would recommend USITT national conferences to any new theatre major that is thinking about becoming a designer.  It can be fairly expensive but thanks to Jerry Kraft and SECOA most of my trip was paid for because of a scholarship I received through USITT Northern Boundry Section, and I am very appreciative for the experience and knowledge I gained. "

-Chad Albert  (Senior at the University of Northern Iowa)
