Our Handsome Training Staff (file photo)2015 Season NHTA Training schedule

Remember last year when we all got together and talked about the upcoming NHTA season? The rules, the responsibilities, and the free candy? Well, we're doing it all again and we invite you to join us!

NH Theatre Awards annual training is a 3 hour session that keeps participating Adjudicators and Liaisons up to date on new policies and refresh their memories on the year long NH Theatre Award process.   To be an Adjudicator or Liaison you must have attended training but anyone is welcome to attend and learn more about the NH Theatre Awards process!

what's so important?

TWO BIG CHANGES

The curriculum has been given a brand new focus with a sweeping facelift!

We are restructuring the focus of training away from the "where and when" (dates & deadlines) to invest more in helping the adjudicators understand the "how and why" (critiquing and analysis). There are also rule changes for 2015!

There will be a NEW on-line element that can be done anytime, anywhere, at your convenience!

We are creating a new feature, an on-line review, to reinforce the "rules & regulations" information that is critical for you to know. This will optimize time spent in classroom sessions to focus on the adjudication "process".   

Completion of the survey will be required, in addition to the classroom training, to be a commissioned adjudicator or liaison in 2015.

we are getting started earlier

We're getting started earlier, which means participating companies need to get liaisons' and adjudicators earlier!

  • PLEASE select your adjudicators and liaison ASAP so they can get to training in time
  • Watch for notice when the 2015 Company Application Form is available. 
  • The deadline for company application submission is December 15th.

Due to this sweeping change in format and content, attendance will be mandatory for all adjudicators and liaisons for next season (2015).   But  with these improvements and coming upgrades to the website this fall, the NHTA will FINALLY be able to implement a process for proven, experienced adjudicators to forgo attending training next year!
