We’re proud to announce that Steven J. Thorburn received the ’96-’97 ICIA Professional Education and Training Committee (PETC) award at the 10th annual ICIA Achievement Awards Presentation.
This year’s ICIA (International Communications Industries Association) awards ceremony was held during the recent InfoComm International trade show in Los Angeles. A note for anyone who attended that show: the Ultimate Digital Theatre, located upstairs in the convention center, showcased not only the newest digital technologies, but some examples of Steve’s acoustical work as well.
Walt Blackwell, ICIA’s Executive Director, told the crowd, “Steve has been instrumental in many ICIA training venues over the years. He and his company have also provided all of the audio and video system engineering for the ICIA Academy in Fairfax, Virginia.”
Founded 58 years ago, the ICIA is an organization which has supported the audiovisual industry from the early days of film and slide to today’s computer and video industry. Their PETC award is given to recognize a person whose continued participation in education and training within the communications industries promotes the newest technologies and methods, provides methods to successfully compete in the global market, fosters professionalism within the trade, and promotes the industry as an exciting career opportunity.
