AES TO HELP AUDIO PROS AFFECTED BY HURRICANE KATRINA

At the 119th AES Convention next week, the organization will launch an industry-wide charity effort to collect funds for audio professionals whose lives and businesses have been devastated by hurricane Katrina. AES-Katrina Audio Relief Effort (AES-KAREs) will collect donations from exhibitors and show attendees throughout the convention, scheduled to take place from October 7th-10th at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.

A special AES-KAREs desk has been established in the show registration area. Donations can also be made via the AES-KAREs Web site at: www.aes.org/info/aes-kares.

The AES-KAREs effort has already gained the support of numerous other industry associations, including NARAS, SPARS, NAPRS, and PAMA. Funds raised at the AES convention will be administered as a Katrina Victim Specific Account established by NERF (Nashville Engineer Relief Fund), a non-profit charitable corporation. A KARE committee is being established to collect applications for assistance and to disburse these funds to affected audio pros.
