The Institute of Sound and Communications Engineers (ISCE) has selected Helen Goddard, managing director for AMS Acoustics, as its new president for a term of three years. She has take over the role from Phil Price, and Gareth Collyer was appointed vice president.
In her inaugural speech at the ISCE's AGM, Helen Goddard thanked the outgoing president for his hard work and commitment to the Institute during his time in the position. Phil Price is remaining as a director of the Institute and chairman of the ISCEx committee.
Goddard commented: “I aim to continue the great success Phil has achieved in his term as president for the ISCE, whose membership has evolved enormously to appeal to a younger, wider and more diverse demographic, whilst continuing to support existing members.
“The institute has modernised its infrastructure and now offers more benefits to individual members, including training, health and safety assessment testing and ECS Card application processing, allowing members to apply for an ECS Sound Engineer Card.”
Goddard added: “The Institute is for its members and so we are keen to know about any issues that council may help with. This will help us devise strategies to fully engage our newest members, such that the institute can dynamically thrive for future generations.”
