AES announces new membership benefits plan
WORLD: A new membership plan with increased fees is to begin at the Audio Engineering Society (AES) from September 1st, 2016. All members will now have access to the AES E-Library, as well as multiple discounts and offers. The annual dues for members and associate members will be US$125, while student member fees will be US$50. Users can join or renew for up to five years at the lower rate before the end of August.
‘The E-Library documents our incredible legacy in one searchable, online database with every paper, AES standard and electronic brief ever published,’ explained Bob Moses, executive director. ‘It’s an incredible asset, and we are opening it up to all AES members as we strive to provide high value in our membership package.’
‘It joins other member benefits such as discounts on AES events, access to our growing library of streaming videos, eligibility for awards and full participation in our global community of audio professionals,' added Alex Case, president-elect and member committee co-chair. ‘The value of membership has increased well beyond the new due rates. Now is the time to take advantage of these benefits at the old rate.’
