As a natural complement to Commercial Integrator’s annual 40 Under 40, we’re planning a series focused on veteran AV professionals. Many industry members love the 40 Under 40 because it celebrates young, hungry, up-and-coming AV professionals who are leaving their mark. However, we mustn’t be blind to the immeasurable contributions women and men have made over the past several decades. Thus, we’re soliciting stories, reminiscences, pearls of wisdom and reflections from our industry’s legends. CI proudly embarks upon this initiative in partnership with Nancy Blanchard from Williams AV and David Danto from The IMCCA.
During ISE 2023 in Barcelona, Blanchard and Danto chatted with Dan Ferrisi, CI’s editor-in-chief, about this initiative. Watch the video embedded below to learn more about what CI is planning and how you can participate.
Would you like to nominate yourself to be included in our series on veteran AV professionals? Would you like to nominate a peer, supervisor, friend or mentor? If so, just email Dan Ferrisi at email@example.com. Please indicate whom you’d like us to contact, how best to reach them, how long they’ve been in the industry, a few of their career highlights and what they might want to share with the industry community. Then, David, Nancy or Dan will get in touch and begin the process.
If you’d like to amplify this initiative and spread the word, please use the hashtag #VeteransofAV across social platforms. And feel free to tag Nancy, David and/or Dan to further amplify the message.
