Special Membership Package for Freelancers

PLASA is working in partnership with Stage Electrics to host a Freelancer Day at RADA's Gielgud Studio on Monday 12 January 2009. The programme, tailored to be of special interest to freelancers in the industry, will be an informal day of stimulating topical presentations, along with the opportunity to network.

Those attending will get to see presentations on Video Integration and how it will affect the Industry; Health & Safety for Freelancers; Finance for Freelancers; Sound Reinforcement - Developing Technologies and Current Trends and a special session on The Benefits of PLASA Membership.

To tie in with this, there will also be an exclusive PLASA Membership offer on the day. Any freelancer who signs up to become a member of PLASA will have the advantage of Stage Electrics contributing the first £40 of their annual membership fee - equating to a third off. In addition, PLASA has pledged to waive the £25.00 verification fee, giving any individual who applies a total saving of £65.00.

Individual membership of PLASA has many advantages; freelancers and consultants get access to a wide range of information and advisory services as well as tailored support from PLASA's Technical Resources team, plus discounted insurance and healthcare packages.
