RUSS BERGER ELECTED PRESIDENT OF NATIONAL COUNCIL OF ACOUSTICAL CONSULTANTS

reb_headshot_08-2008_use.jpgDallas, TX — Russ Berger, president of Russ Berger Design Group, has recently been elected president of the National Council of Acoustical Consultants (NCAC). He begins a two-year term as president following a long history of board participation and membership. Berger’s duties will include supervising all affairs of the Council as well as serving as an ambassador for the consulting profession.

“It is an honor to be selected by my peers to help bring to light the importance of acoustics in everyday living,? says Berger. “NCAC member firms are working hard to find better ways of communicating solutions that serve society by controlling and managing noise, vibration, and the acoustical environment.?

The NCAC (www.ncac.com) is an international organization committed to supporting the acoustical profession and promoting the applied science of acoustics that deals with issues in real-world settings. It supports member growth through peer interaction and by positioning itself as a resource to the public to help match the appropriate consultant to each project. Membership requires that the firm principals who practice acoustical consulting must be full members of either the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) or the Institute of Noise Control Engineering (INCE). Other membership criteria include references from professional peers, demonstrated experience, and adherence to a strong Canon of Ethics supporting the highest standards of business practice, technical consulting, and client service.

“Russ is a very active participant within NCAC and the industry as a whole — so taking on a leadership role is a great fit for him,? says Jackie Williams, executive director of NCAC. “With his extensive knowledge base, along with his commitment to education, we’re excited to have him help to further the message of NCAC over the next two years.?

One of Berger’s priorities as president is educating those new to the industry. “I am particularly excited about building on the excellent relationship NCAC member firms enjoy with higher education, and expanding our commitment to supporting meaningful academic programs in acoustics, architecture, engineering, and design.? His commitment is evident in his relationships with some of the top university communities, board positions at higher education institutions, and continued participation in speaking engagements for schools and professional organizations.

With over 30 years in the industry, Berger has had ample opportunity to hone his talent, and has lent his signature sound to some of the top recording and broadcast studios across the country. His designs include Whitney Houston’s personal studio, NFL Films and NFL Network, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), and Sony Music NY. He is one of the acoustical pioneers in the green revolution, developing some of the first LEED-certified studio spaces for Circle R Media, Sweetwater Studios and the University of Las Vegas.
