ALMA’s Committees are the backbone of the association. It is the consistant input and involvement of ALMA members that advances the association, the industry, and raises the individual profiles of those involved.
ALMA Education Committee
ALMA educates by:
- Identifying and developing programs on subjects related to loudspeakers such as design, development, manufacturing, testing, and management requirements
- Manufacturing and Testing
- Promoting student membership
- Providing training and seminars to our membership through multiple methods and media.
The ALMA Education Committee is dedicated to encouraging the entry of talented students into the field of loudspeaker design and engineering, in continually adding to and sharpening the skills of those in the field, and to keep our members on the cutting edge of technology and business trends.
To fulfill these criteria the ALMA Education Committee has established the following goals:
- Develop and maintain relationships with colleges and universities that have classes, programs, and degrees that relate to loudspeaker design.
- Increase the number of students and faculty who are members of ALMA.
- Establish criteria for ALMA student sections within a higher education setting and establish as many student sections as possible.
- Conduct a student loudspeaker design competition with the final competition to be held at the ALMA Winter Symposium.
- Indentify needs and wants of participants in our industry and develop various streams of education to fulfill those wants and needs.
