Why Am I An AES Member?

I'm an AES member because I love audio, and being an AES member allows me to keep up with all of the latest happenings across all audio-related fields. As a studio engineer in a rural area, it is invaluable to me how the AES offers opportunities to connect with other engineers and to give and receive mentorship.
