AVIXA, formerly InfoComm, will overhaul its membership structure in an effort to offer more flexibility to meet the varying needs of its members.
The changes are part of the organisation’s three-year strategic plan and are designed to accommodate needs of members in different countries and the diverse range of businesses that might consider joining the AV community.
Three levels of membership will now be on offer providing services such as free access to shows, eligibility for council membership, access to standards, and discounts on education. The top-tier individual membership will provide unlimited access to AVIXA’s online training.
Companies can join as enterprise members, with three levels to choose from, plus an option to create a custom enterprise membership. Depending on the level of enterprise membership, companies will have access benefits such as online training for their employees, contract training, discounts on market research, and exhibition space at trade shows. The different levels include varying numbers of individual memberships that can be distributed to employees.
Betsy Jaffe, senior vice president of member services at AVIXA, said: “AVIXA provides a community for AV service providers, live events professionals, manufacturers, and technology managers to come together to move the industry forward.
“It’s the association’s mission to provide the resources needed for AV professionals to thrive. The new membership offerings will also bring professionals from related industries into conversations about the industry, so we can educate them on the value AV professionals bring to enhancing AV experiences.”
InAVate is working with AVIXA to highlight the importance of Standards in the AV industry in a collaboration that will see the AVIXA Standards Award bestowed on one company at the 2018 InAVation Awards.
