Jim Anderson, 131st AES Committee Chair
The 131st AES Convention is scheduled for October 20-23, 2011, in New York City’s Javits Convention Center, offering Workshops, Tutorials, Papers, Master Classes, Technical Tours and Special Events.
“Expectations for the 131st AES Convention are particularly high this year,” says Committee Chair Jim Anderson (pictured). “Our team is making an extraordinary effort to create an unforgettable event.”
AES executive director Roger Furness reports that the stellar Committee is comprised of seasoned pros whose enthusiasm for the Convention is matched only by their professional accomplishments and peer recognition. “Our chairman, Jim Anderson, is a particularly accomplished engineer, producer and educator,” Furness says. “His organizational acumen and leadership skills make him an indispensable asset. Many of our chairs have served for years, and their knowledge of their fields is legendary. Broadcast & Streaming Events chair David Bialik is back for his 23rd consecutive Convention, which we believe is a record. We are honored to attract this level of talent each year, and our attendees reap huge benefits from their dedication to producing a first-rate event.”
The 131st AES Convention Committee comprises Chair Jim Anderson; Broadcast & Streaming Events Chair, David Bialik; Live Sound Co-Chairs Henry Cohen and Mac Kerr; Workshops/Tutorials Chair Natanya Ford; Education Chair John Krivit; Papers Co-Chairs Veronique Larcher and Agnieszka Roginska; Technical Tours Chair, Lou Manno; Games Track Chair, Steve Martz; Facilities Chair, Michael McCoy; EE Co-Chairs, Bob Moses and Jonathan Novick; Tech Tours/Volunteers Chair, Doron Schacter; and Master Class Chair, Alan Silverman.
“Our Committee is constantly challenged with topping the previous year’s events, and the 131st Committee is clearly up to the task,” Anderson concludes. “Over the next few months we will announce a number of surprising innovations and high profile participants. The vigor, good humor we see evidenced at each of our Committee meetings convinces me that the 131st Convention will be one for the books.”
