Approved by Executive Council on October 26, 2004
To operate performing arts facilities at or above industry standards.
To adopt as part of "official campus policy" the recommendations for event staffing.
Our performance venues (Giltz Auditorium, Krinovitz Recital Hall and Hartman Theatre) are classified as: "Areas of Public Assembly: Theatres / Auditoriums." Among others, one condition of occupancy requires that:
A documented training program has been created, is in place and a "House Management System" is operational. "House Staff" defined as:
Addresses legal, aesthetic and costumer service issues.
Other SUNY schools, universities and professional houses. International Association of Auditorium Managers (IAMM), United State Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) and specific sections of state and federal "codes."
No definitive answer exists. However, three consistent themes emerged pertaining to staffing.
Most conducive to our needs because it responds to the spirit of compliance, reflects the language of current code issues and allows us flexibility to define a system based upon individual needs to include but not be limited to: available personnel, venue architecture, historical data and budget sensitivity to sponsoring organizations.
Operating under this system since 2002 has enabled us to establish a working model. Adopting this as part of a campus policy will legitimatize the program and provide the following benefits:
Every precaution must be taken to protect the individual who use the building and its equipment: audiences who come in must be protected as members of the public assembly group; invited groups who rent or lease the auditorium and its equipment and often hire university's students, staff and outside personnel to operate it during their rental time, must be protected. Most of these performing arts spaces and buildings are publicly funded buildings and thus supported by taxpayers and thus must be maintained as a piece of public property.
