Comment on Tech Crew Program

This is a great guidebook for Audio Visual Crews on setting up and running a Tech Crew. AVIXA Foundation Tech Crew Guide | AVIXA Xchange. This is an excellent resource for helping create Audio Visual Crews at the high school level.   While made in Australia, it has an impact and relevance globally. This is a great way to help the next generation of professionals get excited about the audio-visual industry.

Hi Monisha,

   This was a great session.  I am working on a similar initiative in the USA and would like to work with you and the team in Australia to help expand exposure to AV in the marketplace. We have recently created a room for this initiative. AV Education for The Next Generation | AVIXA Xchange.  If you would be so kind as to help me connect with the presenters from the session at Integrate, that would be wonderful.  I am working with AVIXA, BICSI, CEDIA, NSCA, and schools such as Pace University, Houston Community College, Lincoln Technical Institute, Warren High School (state of California approved Audio-Visual curriculum), Sheffield Audio Institute, and The Loop Lab, along with companies such as Crestron Electronics, Dish Networks, Microsoft, and more to help foster audio-visual industry training for the next generation of professionals.

Globally, we are over a $300 Billion industry with the expectation of growing to $400 Billion in the next ten years. The more we connect the various initiatives, the more we can impact and reach the next generation of professionals.

I absolutely agree Wireless conferencing and presentation makes it much more convenient to connect and present. Crestron has a blog post that reinforces this position check out. Microsoft Teams and AirMedia — Hybrid Collaboration with Just One Touch [Crestron Electronics, Inc.]
