Why Am I An AES Member?

I have been an AES member since 2004, and my journey started at the 117th Convention which was an eye-opening experience that allowed me to meet numerous recognized experts in the field. I have been attending the Conventions ever since, to learn from the world's leading experts on a diverse array of audio topics, establish research collaborations, and share my own experience with the crowd. Having benefited much from attending the Conventions, I introduce the AES to all my students and engineer trainees, and encourage their participation.
