CC job interviews "PR"

Most of the jobs in the Convention Industry are contracted per event, and by the client. Rod Shumaker (Events Supplier) is the beneficiary in Lancaster, and he is prepared to handle it....but he services ALL area events, as far as NYC and beyond.

The venue needs an "on call" pool of temps to set up (e.g.) banquet tables, chairs, serve dinners, etc.

But as noted, only a few administrators and maintenance should be full time (or our tax dollars are being further wasted). The CC should NOT invest in event-specific equipment that has to be stored between sporadic uses. The real estate for storage outstrips any income from event rentals.

This move to interview for low-level jobs is PR.
