The AES has released the list of winning candidates from the 2017 Audio Engineering Society international elections. The newly elected officers will assume their roles in October, shortly after the end of the 143rd International AES Convention in New York. Joining President-Elect Wallaszkovits on the AES Board of Governors will be eight newly elected Governors and officers, all beginning two-year terms in October. Kyle P. Snyder, also Chair of Education & Membership, is among the newly elected Governors-at-Large, alongside Jonathan Wyner, and Martha de Francisco.
“In this exciting period of growth and innovation for the Audio Engineering Society, the membership has voted in a dynamic group of new officers,” said AES President Alex Case. ‘I personally look forward to working with, and learning from, these talented individuals as they apply their diverse knowledge and experience to the task of leading the Society into the future.”
“This is an exciting time for AES,” said Snyder, “and I couldn’t be more honored by my peers to be trusted in the leadership of this wonderful organization.”
Within the stipulations of the AES bylaws, the overall function and direction of the AES is established by the Society’s Board of Governors, which is elected by voting members of the Society. The Society’s Executive Director operates and manages the AES headquarters in New York City and reports to the Executive Committee, which consists of the Society’s corporate officers. In turn, the Executive Committee reports on its activities and on issues facing the Society to the full Board of Governors. The AES President serves as the CEO of the Society, under the supervision and direction of the Board of Governors.
