Tech Managers Forum Examines AV Standard Continuity for Higher Ed

It’s been only a few weeks since the Technology Managers Council hosted the Technology Managers Forum: AV Standards: Before, During and After the Pandemic, held on June 23, but the buzz surrounding the event and its contents is still palpable.

Technology Managers Council Discussion  | AVIXA Technology Managers Council: AV Standards: Before, During and After the Pandemic

The interactive format led by moderator Greg Carstens, CTS®-D, CTS-I, with panelists John Cheatham, CTS, Tim Cichos, CTS, Donovan Monday, CTS, Julie Johnston, and Maneesh Kumar, CTS-D, and facilitators, served as a foundation for a lively conversation and active debate on moving higher education AV standards into the next generation across single and multi-campus institutions, as intended. The union of AV industry thought leaders and the collaborative effort to share and compare pro tips and processes helped to keep the discussion going throughout the event, much of which will likely resonate for quite some time.

For those who could not attend, check your calendar, and carve out some time to listen to the playback.
