I was one of the original members of the group along with Jerrold in the late 2000's when we were all working in the Middle East and saw crazy AV stuff virtually on a daily basis. The reason this group is so popular, is because there is just so much material and fodder - proof the AV industry is full of cowboy operators. This is most prevalent in Asia, the Middle East & Africa and probably something AVIXA should put efforts into addressing? 

"high-skill, high-pay industry" - I don't think you can apply this broad statement globally, this is absolutely inconsistent across the globe and very disparate - I've have 30yrs experience in the AV industry and have worked in 16 countries.
For example. payscales in US and Australia are very good, but UK by comparison is significantly lower and not what I would categorise as good or high paid. In Asia, Hong Kong is very low, especially compared to comparable country, Singapore. I'm not comparing payscales between countries, I'm comparing AV payscales relative to other industries and cost of living in each individual country. There's plenty of examples.

If your market intelligence is accurate, it would absolutely reflect this. and it would be at odds with the "high-skill, high-pay industry" statement.
