SAN FRANCISCO: Guiding the 129th AES Convention Committee on their journey to the “Bridge To The Future,” which will culminate at SF’s Moscone Center Nov. 4-7, are Committee Co-Chairs Valerie Tyler and Jim McTigue. AES Executive Director Roger Furness considers these team leaders outstanding co-pilots for the upcoming event. “Both Valerie and Jim are long-term AES champions who have participated regularly in previous convention as well as local section events. We are fortunate to have the benefit of their creative, managerial and technical skills at the helm of this year’s Committee,” Furness comments.
