Because so many audio professionals use Apple products in their everyday work, the Audio Engineering Society (AES) has launched a pilot initiative in conjunction with the Apple Association Member Purchase Program. AES president Jim Anderson reports that an agreement has been reached to provide U.S. and Canada AES members with special savings on the latest Apple products and accessories. "We are exploring the possibility of expanding the program to other territories as well," Anderson said.
AES U.S./Canada Members visiting the Apple Store link at www.aes.org will find a number of exclusive options, including special member pricing on Apple and third-party products; exclusive promotions; complimentary shipping on all orders over $50; free engraving on all new iPod models; Mac customization; flexible business financing options.
"The AES is continually seeking new ways to benefit our members," Anderson said. "When Apple approached us with an opportunity to provide special pricing on software and hardware from one of the most ubiquitous tool groups at use in contemporary audio production/post production, we immediately recognized a valuable added service."
