The Audio Engineering Society (AES) is the foremost international organisation dedicated to the increasingly wide field of audio engineering. Since it was founded in 1948, the AES has provided the industry with a world-wide framework for the advancement of both the science and the art of audio.
Currently over 12,000 members are affiliated with more than 75 AES national and regional professional sections and more than 95 AES student sections around the world. Section organised activities include guest speakers, technical tours, demonstrations and social functions. Through these local AES section events, members experience valuable opportunities for professional networking and personal growth.
Ben has served on the UK committee for 3 years, helping to run events and guide policy in the audio industries, and now takes on the position of chair for the UK section. He recently brought ‘Up Your Output’, the AES UK’s annual student event, to Leeds Beckett and has hosted several AES UK lectures at the university. Ben hopes to continue some of the great work of his predecessors in improving gender equality and attitudes towards gender in the audio industry and also exploring and promoting sustainability within the industry.
