APRS Overseas Category For Launch

Following regular enquiries from overseas audio companies, the APRS has decided to create a new category of membership that will encourage the development of a worldwide network of pro-audio practitioners that will benefit both UK and overseas APRS members.
APRS Overseas Associate Membership is designed to help overseas companies find direct contact with the APRS's UK constituency and to keep UK members in touch with developments in every area of audio technologies.
APRS Executive Director Peter Filleul explained: "We have been faced with requests from the USA, Europe and Asia to help connect manufacturers with our UK members for some years but have been concerned not to confuse or dilute our representation of the UK.
"However, now that we are in such a global market place and there is an even greater need to export goods and services, as well as to attract visiting studio clients, there is little point in being protectionist."
The APRS is confident that, despite the ease of Internet enquiry, offering a tailored and targeted connection to the world's best studios and pro audio manufacturers will encourage commercial interactions to flourish - in both directions.
Overseas members will acquire direct access to the APRS' existing membership; receive and be able to contribute to APRS publications, including the Bulletins and Handbooks; be listed in the membership databases; participate in on-line technical workshops; participate in the APRS Sound Fellowship nomination processes, and attend APRS events at membership rates whenever they are in the UK. APRS Overseas Associates may also enjoy the MyAPRS social network and professional gossip connections with the entire APRS membership.
APRS Overseas Associate membership will cost £100 and can be applied for simply by logging on to: and click on 'Join the APRS' on the left-hand column.
