To Our Members,

We write this letter to share difficult news with all of you. Due to the pandemic and the dramatic impacts to our industry, AVIXA has completed a strategic realignment of the organization. Throughout this time, we have chosen to focus on the three priorities we face: balancing the needs of our members, the needs of our business, and the needs of our team. Unfortunately, this focus has resulted in a number of job positions being eliminated; and while we respect the privacy of our employees and the sensitivity of this matter, we also felt it important to share with our member community the impact of these changes.

We wish the very best for all of them.    

For those employees who remain, charged with the mission of bringing AVIXA and the audiovisual industry forward into the amazing future before us, let us pause and thank our departing colleagues and friends. Let us take time to feel the sadness that all of us will feel. And let us also pause to thank them for all they have given to AVIXA and the industry over many years. The greatest honor we can pay to their legacy is to carry their good work forward.

As your industry association, we look forward to the work ahead of us, to the strength of the diverse community that makes AV, and we look forward to supporting you through the pandemic and beyond.

We thank you for your thoughts to those whose positions have been eliminated; and we thank you for your support today and into the future.

David Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD
Chief Executive Officer
