Election Results


Dear Members of the AES Colorado Section,


Thanks for allowing me the pleasure of serving as your chair the past two years. During this time we had many fun and interesting meetings along with the very successful AES conference last summer on Audio Forensics.  I thank all of you for you help and support and ask that you remain involved in the section in years to come as we continue the AES tradition in Colorado.  


My vacated seat will be filled by Jeff Merkel; a very engaging audio professional that has done a lot for our section already and will be a great Chair.  Joe Erickson will continue as Treasurer for our section and other newcomers to the AES-CO executive board are Tira Neal as Vice Chair and Lynnae Rome as Secretary.  Lynnae is currently serving as Chair of the UCD Student Section where she has revitalized student involvement in the AES.  We look forward to help from her and Tira in bridging the gap with our student constituency and in creating stronger ties between students and audio professionals.


Most of all, I would like for you to help me thank the outgoing officers that have also served our section for the last two years.  Doug Greenlee, outgoing Vice Chair and David Bondelevitch, outgoing Secretary.


Thanks and I look forward to seeing you all at AES-CO events soon!


Sincerely, Jeff Smith
