Plans for AES Speaker's Bureau in the Works
AES President Ron Streicher, in cooperation with the Board of Governors, has announced the inauguration of the AES Distinguished Speakers Program. Still in its developmental phase, the Distinguished Speakers Program is intended to become an important element of the Society's educational efforts, making it possible for local AES sections to host speakers who can address a wide variety of topics to thousands of audio professionals world wide.

Financial support for the speakers bureau has been initiated with the establishment of a special fund created by Streicher, who made a large personal contribution to its launch. The AES Speaker's Bureau will feature a roster of leading authorities, who will travel to various AES sections worldwide presenting the latest developments in today's rapidly advancing audio world.

Streicher plans for the Bureau to be operational before the end of his term in October, 2004, and is spearheading a campaign to obtain additional funding from both private and public sources.

Standards Update
Richard Chalmers has been appointed as the new AES Standards Committee Chair by the AES President, Ron Streicher. The AES wishes to express its sincere gratitude to former Chair, John Nunn, for years of dedication to AES Standards Initiatives and welcome Richard Chalmers to his new position.
