Project Details

What We Need
  • Audit of existing Employee Handbook, or internal communications regarding employment policies
  • Edit or creation of a new Employee Handbook, which may include any of the following: Standards of Conduct, Work Schedules, Leave Policies, Termination Policies, Safety and Security, Anti-Discrimination policies, Compensation and Benefits policies, any Non-Disclosure Agreements or Conflict of Interest statements that may apply, and any other pertinent information
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have no handbook in place which should make applying successful templates and adjusting them to specific theatre needs easy. Our Executive Board has momentum on addressing our core issue to 'defining roles and responsibilities' so active support and resources are available. Also, we have accurate job descriptions and procedures all over the place that an assigned RTOP member has centralized for your review.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,430 , allowing us to clearly define roles and responsibilities and promote active community involvement.

Our theatre struggles with defining roles and responsibilities. We therefore lose valuable volunteers and social capital. To overcome this issue, through Catchafire we have completed a By Laws Audit, are in the process of developing a Board Requirement Strategy and now seek additional professional assistance to help create a Member Handbook. We are going from one project to the next addressing our core issue and finding that the solutions are spreading like wildfire.

Our Mission

Promoting the Arts and Arts Education through quality theatre.


Regional Theatre Of the Palouse is extremely satisfied with the final Employee Handbook Linda created. She has an eye for detail, wealth of HR expertise, and made what was an otherwise insurmountable task relatively easy. I had such a pleasure working with Linda and highly recommend her to everyone reading this.
