“Changes to the InfoComm bylaws have resulted in a smaller board, a new Leadership Development Committee, and other changes designed to increase participation in InfoComm activities while providing a more manageable governance structure,” says Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., executive director of InfoComm International. “I am grateful for the dedicated service of outgoing Governors-at-Large Mark Gander of Harman Pro Group and Rashid Skaf of AMX.”

UPCOMING STANDARDS PUBLIC REVIEW PERIOD
After a year of concerted standards development, the InfoComm Performance Standards Program is preparing to open up the first-draft standard for public review. The public review period is an important phase in the development of standards that are submitted to ANSI. During this period, the first draft will be available for review electronically at www.infocomm.org/standards.
InfoComm members and the general public are encouraged to formally participate in standards development by reviewing the document and commenting. Public review and comment of developing standards is critical to the ANSI process of openness and consensus, ensuring wide availability to the document and the opportunity for agreement or disagreement. Instructions explaining how to submit a comment are available online through the aforementioned link. Comments of positive support will also be welcomed, as the ANSI process seeks to ensure that there have been many eyes on the project.
This is your opportunity to play a role in the transformation of the audiovisual industry into a globally standards-based profession. The Performance Standards Steering Committee welcomes your involvement. If you would also like to participate as an expert contributor, email email@example.com.
