Benefits of Membership

News and Information

All members are now given free access to the AES E-Library, which contains every paper ever published in the AES Journal or at an AES convention or conference.
The Journal of the AES (10 issues per year) is provided in digital form or (optionally) in print to all membership grades. Members also receive exclusive online access to numerous technical and creative tutorials, videos and articles.

Meetings and Activities

Local sections send meeting notices and newsletters for their activities to members in their geographic areas. Schedules of AES conventions and conferences are sent to the entire membership.


All members receive discounts on convention and conference registration fees as well as greatly reduced prices for publications in the E-library and all other items available through the AES Store. Members can save even more money by referring their friends.

One of our more popular benefits for our U.S. members is discount program provided by Apple. U.S. members can find the link in the AES Member Portal.

AES members also enjoy significant discounts on books by Taylor & Francis (Routledge, CRC Press, Focal Press) – including AES Presents titles and software from Sound Particles.

Career Resources

Member profiles and forums allow AES members to network with each other through the AES website. Full members with public profiles receive the additional benefit of appearing in the results of "Find an Audio Engineer" searches. The Job Board lists openings from AES Sustaining Member companies, and the Education Directory catalogs vocational and academic programs in audio engineering world-wide.
