Table of Contents
Attendees of The Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo are in for a treat as artist, writer, engineer, producer and studio owner Ben Folds kicks off this year’s event with the opening keynote address at 10am this Friday. Set for Belmont’s Curb Event Center, just steps away from the heart of Nashville’s legendary Music Row, NRW+E will be held this weekend on March 5-6, 2010 and will once again feature top industry guest speakers and panelists, as well as exhibits by many of today’s leading audio gear manufacturers. The Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo was designed to provide the growing number of individuals owning personal recording spaces, including artists and songwriters, access to the experience and knowledge of the AES and its affiliates, and to provide real-world insights into technology and techniques that can help attendees achieve professional results, whether in a high-end recording studio or working with a less-than-professional budget.
The official convention hotel this year is the Novotel London West which is the venue for the entire convention and is also located conveniently to Central London and Heathrow Airport. You can reserve your room using the PDF form on our website. Make sure to mention AES in any communication with the hotel. Book your room today!
In addition to an exciting exhibit floor, a packed technical program will be held in London. This will include over 200 Papers and Posters, a full line up of Tutorials, Workshops and Broadcast sessions. There will also be sessions of particular relevance to the Recording Industry. More details and a full calendar will be posted online in mid-March.
Charges for AES standards were reviewed at the end of last year and, with the support of the AES Board of Governors, it has been decided to make AES standards available to AES members free of charge as a benefit of membership. This will provide individual standards in their full printable form as downloadable PDF files. Select the documents you need in the Standards Store and proceed to checkout as normal; make sure you provide the required proof of membership and the invoice will show no charge! Non-members will continue to be able to access informational previews of standards for free and also purchase full printable copies.
The AES Job Board is where our sustaining members post their latest job openings. As an AES member you have exclusive access to this list. The most recent postings can be found here:
As Membership Chair, I would like to invite Associate members of the Audio Engineering Society to consider upgrading to full AES member status.
An Associate Member may be anyone interested in audio engineering and in the society's objectives, but who does not yet have the degree or the equivalent in professional experience required of a Member.
Although Associate members may serve on a professional section committee and are a vital part of the Socitey, as an Associate member, you are not entitled to the benefits or services offered to a full AES member.
Moving from Associate member to full AES Member offers several privileges. Members are permitted to vote while Associate members are not. AES members with Member grade or higher are permitted to hold office or chairmanships. They can also create a public Member Profile and list themselves in the "Find an Audio Engineer" area of the AES website. When a non-member visits our website only full Members are listed in the search results.
Member grade implies that a member is active in audio engineering or acoustics and has an academic degree or the equivalent in scientific or professional experience in audio engineering and its allied arts, and is familiar with the application of engineering principles and data in that field.
Associates may apply for elevation to full Member grade on our website, and these applications will be considered by the Admissions committee.
Theresa Leonard, Chair of AES Membership Committee
