Webster University AES Student Section President was present with a report on the upcoming Central Region AES Student Summit on April 2-3. Members are encouraged to attend and to invite others to attend this hybrid event with presenters and students attending in-person and from around the world virtually. 70 presenters are scheduled. We are on track to have our next regular meeting in person! The next meeting was set for May 2, 2022. Participants are encouraged to join AES; however, membership will not be required to attend and feel free to invite others to visit as well. The Webster audio students are encouraged to attend and those students graduating this spring, as well as any students who graduated this past December, will be celebrated at the next meeting. A member led discussion followed on how to handle situations of technical issues and difficulties that unfold with clients in the room or during live productions was lively and well-received.
