NOTE: anyone can attend this meeting regardless of their status as an AES member.
Message from the Chair
It has been my privilege to be our Section's Chair for the last two years, and for six terms before that in the last 23 years. Our Section is Internationally known among AES members and officers as being one of the stronger Sections worldwide, and that should be a source of pride for all of us.

As I prepare to turn the position over to likely the only person nationally who is capable of filling my shoes (ahem!), I wanted to thank the current officers:

James "JJ" Johnston, Vice-Chair;
Gary Louie, Secretary;
and Lawrence Schwedler, Treasurer
who have done what they needed to do and made the Chair's job easier and more fun by being good people.

The support and help of the many members of the Committee has been both heartening and appreciated.

Our non-Committee members who volunteer on an ongoing basis to do important jobs to make the Section run:

Rick Chinn, Webmaster;
Dave Tosti-lane, Asst. Webmaster;
Bob Smith, Technical Advisor
They keep our Section going by making sure that you know about what we do and that there is technical validity to it.

Contrary to my normal activities for the last 28 years, I've decided not to run again for the Committee following an Officer term, and will be pleased to watch as new people put their ideas into the Section and take it in new and exciting directions.

Instead, I'm going to follow my recent interests in audio history. As a direct result of my 30th Street Studio presentation at the last Convention in New York, I'm currently Chair of the Historical Track at the next Convention there, am on the Historical Committee, and have been inexplicably nominated for election to the position of Western Regional Vice-President!

Since we all know people who have also run for that office and been soundly trounced, I expect my result will be the same.

However, I would still like to encourage you to vote in the election and for me, if you feel like it. Full members should get ballots sometime around or after the end of this month.

Associate Members or Student members cannot vote in the National election. Members and Associate Members CAN vote at our local elections.

If you are an Associate Member, have been for at least two years, and would like to make the move to Full Member (SAME DUES but you can vote), now is the time to do so.

It is surprisingly easy to upgrade, but unless you have this link


you'll never find it on the webpage. I had to call Bob Moses to talk me through, and he couldn't find it, either. Fortunately, the webmaster was sitting with him and told us. Anyway, use that link and answer the many questions. If you need references, go ahead and use any of the people I've mentioned in this note and we will all support you. Submit the form, and you'll hear back when you've been upgraded and can then vote for your favorite candidates in the National elections, which are soon.

Thanks again for everything, hope to see you at our next meeting or one after that.
