East Coast AES Committee chairman Jim Anderson (pictured) is leading a team of audio industry pros in planning the 123rd AES Convention, which takes place October 5-8, 2007 at the Javits Center in New York City. Anderson, a producer who has won multiple Grammy Awards, is returning for his third consecutive term in chairing the committee. Anderson is chairman of New York University’s Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music.
Rejoining Anderson on the 2007 AES Committee, which began meeting in September 2006, is Broadcast chair David Bialik (celebrating his 19th term); Tutorials and Workshops chair Alex Case; Live Sound co-chairs Henry Cohen and John Kilgore; Historical chair Harry Hirsch; Facilities chair Michael McCoy; Special Events chair David Prentice; Papers co-chairs Agnieszka Roginska and Veronique Larcher; Technical Tours chair Lou Manno; and Master Class chair Alan Silverman.
“Each year this Committee is challenged to raise the bar beyond standards set by previous conventions,” says AES executive director Roger Furness. “Amazingly, the diversity of the events, the numbers of attendees and exhibitors, and the overall level of quality actually does increase year after year. There is no way of adequately compensating Committee members for the time and effort they devote to the Convention, so it is particularly important to acknowledge their volunteer status.”
