As InfoComm International’s board of directors settle into their new roles and planning for the 2014 InfoComm Show gets into full gear, the organization’s executive and members are also celebrating its 75th anniversary.
Established in 1939, InfoComm has grown from a small room of educational technologists into a 5,000-member-strong association that includes manufacturers, systems integrators, dealers and distributors, independent consultants, programmers, rental and staging companies, end users, and multimedia professionals from more than 80 countries.
Leading InfoComm into this milestone year is Board of Directors President Johanne Bélanger, who is also president of Canadian firm Freeman Audio Visual (formerly AVW-TELAV Audio Visual Solutions). Bélanger, along with the rest of the 2014 InfoComm board of directors, assumed her new role on Jan. 1.
Bélanger, who has previously served as InfoComm’s secretary treasurer and president-elect, comments, “The past five years leading up to this commencement have given me the opportunity to gain much deeper insight into the composition and concerns of InfoComm International’s multifaceted global membership, while leading efforts to standardize practices as a representative of the rental and staging industry segment. I am honoured to step into the role of president and, with the support of my fellow board members, continue to enhance the quality and capacity of the association’s educational offerings, resources and events.”
As well, InfoComm has also announced that for the first time, Microsoft will be a platinum sponsor and occupy a significant exhibit at the 2014 InfoComm Show in Las Vegas, NV from June 18-20.
