The Cinema Audio Society's outgoing president, David Fluhr, CAS, announced the results of the 2015 Board of Directors elections. The new Board was installed at the 51st Annual CAS Awards, which were held on February 14, 2015.
With a breadth and depth of experience in the field of sound the new board represents a cross section of experienced production and post-production sound professionals.
The CAS Officers are newly elected Board President Mark Ulano, CAS; newly elected Treasurer Peter R. Damski, CAS; and returning Secretary David J. Bondelevitch, CAS.
The Board of Directors held a special election in order to fill the Vice-President slot vacated by Mark Ulano. Phil Palmer, CAS, will be completing Ulano's term.
The new CAS Board of Directors is comprised of new and returning members, all of whom are CAS members: re-recording mixers Deb Adair, Bob Bronow, Gary Rizzo, Tomlinson Holman, Sherry Klein, Walter Murch, Karol Urban, and Steve Venenzia, and production mixers John Coffey, Peter Devlin, Ed Greene, Lee Orloff, Lisa Pinero, Glen Trew, and Jeff Wexler.
“It was a true honor to serve the membership these last four years, and I am confident that my good friend Mark Ulano will lead the organization with a steady hand," says Fluhr. "My thanks go out to the entire Board of Directors, staff, and members who have helped make the CAS a healthy and vital organization, dedicated to the advancement of sound.”
“I am honored to take the leadership of such a significant institution," says new CAS President Ulano. "As I look at the Board of Directors I will be serving with, I am struck by their dedication to sound and commitment to the CAS. We have a legacy to honor and a commitment to advance the recognition of the art of sound mixing. I am energized by the responsibility you have placed in my hands.”
