Jeff Cohen  |USA - New York Region Governor for a Two-Year Term, 1 January 2022 – 31 December 2023 

Director of Sales  -Domo Tactical Communications 

I'm Jeff Cohen and I've been a member of the Society since 1980. I started my career as an operating engineer in studios and post-production and later moved into sales and marketing roles for manufacturers such as Sony, Avid, and BBC Technology. I'm currently the Director of Broadcast Sales for RF product manufacturer Domo Tactical Communications. My perspective on the Society is largely from that of an active participant in the local Section here in New York. I believe that perspective can benefit the Society as local Sections are the grass roots basis of the Society and have too often been somewhat overlooked when compared to the more exciting activities of standards committees and national technical conferences. As Governor, I can be an effective advocate for local Sections and their members. During my tenure as a leader of the NY Section, I was able to end our financial dependance on HQ; recruited the most diverse Board of Managers in the history of the Section; and transitioned our Section meetings from live venues to Virtual online events in the face of the Pandemic. My goals for the future are to develop a Society that is both interesting and attractive to a more diverse, younger membership and to enhance the benefits of local membership through the development of more interesting and relevant programming, more frequent social events, and strengthening the sense of community among members.
