Women's Council | AVIXA


The AVIXA™ Women’s Council has called on industry members to join AVIXA’s Mentor Program. The scheme welcomes members interested in advancing the AV industry by learning from other professionals and furthering professional development to elevate a more diverse, skilled workforce.

“Women need to feel welcomed to the industry, and access to mentoring is a crucial part of this,” says Deborah Jones, AV/IT Sales Manager at the QEII Centre. “Experienced mentors can educate and drive a path toward qualifications such as CTS® – automatically benchmarking mentees against the best in the industry.”

Mentoring can provide benefits industrywide – not only is it a great tool for personal development and further education, but it can offer companies a chance to invest in their staff, work on employee retention and provide networking opportunities.

Is verifying an AV system’s performance part of your job or in your purview? Are you ready to contribute your expertise to an industry-changing publication? If so, AVIXA is keen to hear from you.

AVIXA is seeking to form a task group of people who have used the Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification standard (ANSI/INFOCOMM 10:2013) and can help to make improvements to the solid framework the standard provides. Those interested in volunteering are invited to apply by 31 August, and the task group will have its first virtual meeting at the end of September 2018.

AV Meets (Future) Experts | AVIXA


The audiovisual industry is always in need of new talent to bring added creativity and enthusiasm to this vibrant market. For many students and educators, however, the diverse career opportunities in the audiovisual field are not well known. To place audiovisual careers in the spotlight, AVIXA is organising an open day – titled ‘AV Meets Future Experts’ – on 25 October, in cooperation with Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW). Students and lecturers will have the opportunity to learn more about pathways in the AV industry, as well as make future contacts. The event is conducted in German language, although English-speaking guests are very welcome.

If you are interested in holding a workshop and promoting your company as an employer, contact Rafael Melson via rmelson@avixa.org.
