Moving ahead in 2011

The section managers and I are focused on re-vitalizing the San Francisco section in 2011. We are well aware that the Bay Area is home to some of the most innovative technological developments that are already affecting the way the world consumes moving media and will continue to do so for years to come. The traditional delivery methods of motion pictures and over-the-air television are rapidly morphing into a plethora of different distribution channels, increasing the opportunities for the connected world to consume media product, whether at home, in the theatre, or on the move. The future is exciting and we are lucky to be right in the middle of so much of the innovation.

As we work to bring the San Francisco section back to full speed your section managers are actively searching out opportunities for interesting, thought-provoking and mind-stretching section meetings that will hopefully be of interest to you all. We are well aware that the “San Francisco” section covers the whole of the Bay Area, with all its geographic- (and traffic-) related challenges. We aim to spread the meeting venues around the whole area, giving everyone as equal a chance of attending as possible. If you have any thoughts for a topic you would like to see covered, please drop us a line and let us know your ideas. It is my goal that the section functions as a valuable networking opportunity for those of us in the media delivery business as well as continuing the process of educating our members to advances in technology and methods.

Please be certain to check this page frequently, especially the "meetings" tab to the right, for details of events througout the year.

I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming meetings.
