At the recent AGM of the Institute of Sound and Communications Engineers (ISCE) Phil Price MInstSCE was appointed president for a term of three years, taking over from Tony Smith.
At the same time, Helen Goddard FInstSCE, managing director of AMS Acoustics, was appointed vice president.
In his inaugural speech at the AGM, RCF executive, Phil Price, thanked the outgoing president, who remains on the council and will serve as a director of the Institute.
Setting out his goals over the next three years, Price said he faced a challenging period ahead. “I want to ‘spearhead’ much more awareness of the Institute from outside our membership,” he comments. “I also want to see the Institute become more prominent as a ‘recognised’ body for ensuring the correct standards are applied when projects and installations are competed.”
Furthermore, he said he sought recognition from other allied associations “to show that choosing an ISCE member or supporting member organisation will ensure that the highest standards have been applied.
“Ultimately I would like to see recognition of the ISCE at central and local government levels across its main disciplines of commercial and professional audio and communications.”
Finally, he will be looking to meet with as many members as possible “to gain grass-roots views and ideas for strengthening the Institute.”
