Upcoming Elections

Members of the Central Indiana Section of the Audio Engineering Society-

After some delay due to the present health crisis, we are once again preparing to hold our biennial section election!  This election will include the positions of section chair, vice-chair, secretary, and treasurer, as well as committee members.  Candidates for these positions must be AES member in good standing who list Central Indiana as their primary section.  To nominate yourself or another member of the Central Indiana Section, please email the name, member number, email address, and short bio & headshot (if available) to the current section secretary, Brett Leonard by Thursday, January 20th, 2022.  In addition to section officer elections, the upcoming ballot will also include a proposed change of the Central Indiana Section’s name to the Indiana Section, intended to reflect that our Section activities are open to all throughout the state by removing the reference to the central Indiana geographic area, which often has been misinterpreted as being restrictive.  The full text of the relevant changes to the bylaws will be included in the ballot.

Voting will open on Monday, January 24th, 2022 via a secure, anonymous online ballot using your AES member number, and voting will remain open for two weeks.  Following voting, election results will be announced at the next section meeting, held virtually on Tuesday, February 8th, 2022 at 7 PM.

We are looking forward to a great year, a variety of new events/meetings, and a happy New Year!
