Guiding the 129th AES Convention Committee on its journey to the “Bridge to the Future,” which will culminate at San Francisco’s Moscone Center on November 4-7, 2010, are Committee Co-Chairs Valerie Tyler and Jim McTigue.

“Both Valerie and Jim are long-term AES champions who have participated regularly in previous convention as well as local section events," says AES Executive Director Roger Furness. "We are fortunate to have the benefit of their creative, managerial and technical skills at the helm of this year’s Committee.”

Valerie Tyler has been active in the AES since 1993, and has served on seven convention committees in positions ranging from Convention Co-Chair to Workshops, Special Events, and Tutorials & Master Classes Co-Chair. Tyler studied music at UC Santa Cruz, the music/recording industry at San Francisco State University, and electronic music, digital audio, digital video, Web design and graphic design at the College of San Mateo. She is currently Webmaster at College of San Mateo. She previously worked as an audio editor and as a freelance live sound engineer.
