Jennifer Willard, founder of Women in AV, announced a major industry recruitment initiative for the fall where members will be going out into their communities to encourage both men and women to join the AV industry.

Willard said one major goal is to have women from every continent in the organization. “I will not stop until I get a woman in AV from Antarctica,” she said.

On the panel, Kelly Bousman, senior VP of marketing for AVI-SPL, spoke about the local peer-to-peer mentoring program she’s involved with in Tampa, FL. “I try to help people align the resources and tools they need,” she said.

Mike Miller, of Vaddio, advises mentors to “give everything you have to [prot égés] because you’re going to make them better by doing it.”

Parsing the Flat Panel Market

Post-InfoComm– where the focus was of course on commercial AV– it’s a useful exercise to look this week at the latest numbers from the “TV” display world. Because no matter how you parse the markets, we are all still living in a world where consumer market technology advances drive many segments of the pro AV side. Case in point: flat panels.
