Bruce Hofer opened the meeting with a brief summary of recent committee activities, including scheduling of the upcoming annual meeting, at which the revised bylaws and slate of officer candidates will be voted on.

Reid McCargar then presented on the topic of audio education for musicians and other individuals interested in audio engineering, but lacking a scientific or engineering background. Reid delivered such a course last spring at Portland State, and will be doing so again this fall. The course is unique in that it focuses on conceptually grasping the physical and physiological principles of audio much more so than typical audio education for non-scientists. The methodology and course resources are still in a formative stage. The course at PSU generated considerable interest, and helped consumers of music-industry-grade audio products make more educated decisions about their purchasing and application of audio technology.
