On Monday evening March 22 at 6 p.m. at the League offices, we have our next free roundtable event which covers HR and the Arts, led by Allison Cain, Managing Director of Lifeline Theatre (former HR professional for PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Watson Wyatt and the Freemen Company). She'll share recruiting and on boarding tools and encourage participants to ask questions and share best practices and experiences. This event should provide invaluable information for companies of all sizes; whether you are interviewing interns or volunteers, contracting designers and production staff or hiring full or part time staff, there will be something for everyone. We still have space available. Just RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
