2013 marks the 34th anniversary of the founding of SPARS. For 34 years we have been serving the recording industry, weathering the changes our members face. Today is no different. SPARS has re-tooled itself to serve, not only our legacy members, but to reach out to smaller facilities as well as independent engineers and producers. Our activities are centered around mentoring and continuing education activities like the regional SPARS Studio Summit program, the Ask SPARS mentoring sessions and a vital on-line presence on the Web and in Social Media. We encourage you to become a member and join with us. There are many advantages to joining, not the least of which is being a part of a group of professionals committed to high standards in the craft of recording. Members have the distinction of being able to display the SPARS member logo, a real plus in promoting your services.
SPARS is committed to bringing all the members of our industry together to share knowledge, business practices and marketing expertise. As part of this commitment, SPARS has launched the SPARS Studio Summit program, a new mentoring and education initiative to bring together educators, students, producers, engineers and SPARS members and facilities, on a regional basis. As part of the Studio Summit, Ask SPARS is SPARS new mentoring initiative that allows students and working career recording professionals access to successful industry leaders. In addition to our other Social Media, SPARS has recently launched a new Facebook Mentoring Forum. Join with us and become part of the discussion.
SPARS has a new column, SPARS Sound Bite, in Mix and Mix On Line and a new Blog, SPARS PatchBay, on Pro Sound Network. These columns are written by SPARS members. Join SPARS and you will have the opportunity to contribute your thoughts and ideas.
