New AES Membership Status Logos

Membership Status

A new addition to the AES Member Portal is the opportunity for members to download dedicated graphics denoting their Audio Engineering Society membership status. These new logos can be used for email signatures, social media badges, or any other place where members want to display their Society status and dedication to the art and science of audio engineering. AES Membership logos are also great for linking to members’ AES Member Profiles – their personal page on the AES site, which can be used to share bios, membership activities, credits and work history, external links, awards and other relevant industry information.

Remember too, everyone wins with the new AES Refer a Friend program – each new or lapsed renewing member nets 10% of the membership rate, as does the referring member.

June Inside Track Features Hearing and Hearing Loss Prevention

Inside Track

The AES Inside Track features expert industry curators highlighting a topic of choice, with editorial insight as well as links to related research topics, videos, and more. It's available exclusively through the AES Member Portal and is a member benefit, free to all AES members.

This month's curator is Jon Boley, joint papers chair for the 2018 AES International Conference on Music Induced Hearing Disorders, for which there is still time to register. As Jon explains, our ability to hear is a crucial part of our lives and careers, but we all have difficulty hearing in some situations. Unfortunately, exposure to loud sounds (including music) can degrade our ability to hear and make those challenging situations even more so.

This month's Spotlight video interview, hosted by Francis Rumsey, features Chris Baume talking about his paper on a novel approach to speech editing for radio, using a digital pen, published in the May AES Journal.
