Why Am I An AES Member?

I became student AES member in my first year of PhD study and became full member after graduation. My entire working life is closely linked to audio engineering and acoustics, and therefore I can't imagine myself not being AES member.
AES membership stretches around the globe, and I admire the ability to meet and talk to people of highest level of expertise in acoustics and audio through the AES network.
