AES Adds Apple Association Member Purchase Program
Because so many audio professionals use Apple products in their everyday work, the Audio Engineering Society has launched a pilot initiative in conjunction with the Apple Association Member Purchase Program. AES President Jim Anderson reports that an agreement has been reached to provide U.S. AES members with special savings of up to 17 percent on the latest Apple products and accessories. “We are exploring the possibility of expanding the program to other territories as well,” Anderson says.
AES U.S. members visiting the Apple Store link at the AES Website will find a number of exclusive options including special member pricing on Apple and third-party products; exclusive promotions; complimentary shipping on all orders over $50; fee engraving on all new iPod models; Mac customization; and flexible business financing options.
“The AES is continually seeking new ways to benefit our members,” Anderson says. “When Apple approached us with an opportunity to provide special pricing on software and hardware from one of the most ubiquitous tool groups at use in contemporary audio production/post-production, we immediately recognized a valuable added service.”
The 127th AES Convention will be held at the Javits Convention Center in new York City October 9–12, 2009.
