AVIXA Rolls Out New Membership Initiatives, Benefits
AVIXA, formerly known as Infocomm, has announced its new membership benefits and the details are tantalizing.
Right out the gate, AVIXA is honoring 2017 memberships, upgraded to a Bronze company level (lowest tier) or Premium individual level (middle tier), following the new 2018 structure in at no additional cost. For new members, AVIXA has a "customized path" for individuals or business.
This follows closely to AVIXA's three-year restructuring, a way for the group to build a community that welcomes AV members while offering huge benefits. The model is built on many different factors according to the association, including geographical member needs, inticing interested groups, and free online information for dealers.
The new structure will offer three different levels of membership for individuals, providing various benefits, such as free access to shows around the world, 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.
“AVIXA provides a community for audiovisual 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,” said Betsy Jaffe, senior vice president, member services, AVIXA. “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.”
Companies can elect to 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 to a variety of 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.
