The 4th annual conference ran from Thursday, March 24th to Sunday, March 27th, 2010.  This year saw us adding another 3 courses to our repertoire, but not extending the length of the conference - 12 courses over 4 days, which allowed participants to choose between core skills and more complex topics. In response to the participants feedback in 2009, we split the Human Resources and the Health & Safety courses in order to get more indepth in the content.  Human Resources II with Genevieve Farrell, explored the sobering realities of other legislation and legal issues that need to be considered when dealing with employees. This session focussed on accommodation, harassment, discrimination and dismissal.  Matt Farrell took us past Due Dilligence in Health & Safety II to look more indepthly at the expectations (and consequences) of the managerial responsibilities in the area of Health and Safety, as it applies to the entertainment business.  Finally our Administrator, Janelle Rainville, offered a course on how Production Managers can capitalize on their relationship with their Stage Managers.

The Conference culminated in our 2nd "Party of PMs" at the Elephant & Castle Pub & Restaurant on Yonge Street.  It gave participants, instructors and local PMs and technicians a chance to de-brief, swap stories, network and just unwind.  We hope that it will become an quarterly event for the Toronto community.

We are also proud to have hosted an educational roundtable (not only for academics) that built on the momentum created in Halifax, at the 2010 CITT Annual Conference. Led by Susann Hudson, T.D. of the Department of English and Theatre at Acadia University this session delved into the variety of ways students in Theatre Production programs are evaluated.  This work will hopefully continue at the 2011 CITT Annual Conference in Victoria this August.
