Thank You for the Honor, CEDIA
Founding editor Julie Jacobson shares CEDIA Fellow’s honor with CE Pro team.
I am honored to join the esteemed ranks of CEDIA Fellows for 2017. Thank you, CEDIA board for the recognition, and congratulations to my fellow Fellows this year – David Graham of Grahams Hi-Fi in London, and Australia-based Len Wallis of Len Wallis Audio.
It’s been a privilege to serve the industry and our trade organization for so long, and a complete joy to participate in the CEDIA Technology Council currently.
One reason I’m able to do these things is because of my awesome colleagues at EH Publishing, including Jason Knott and the entire CE Pro team. I often get an undo share of the glory because I happen to have the luxury of doing (mostly) what I want, which makes me pretty visible – for better or for worse.
The rest of the gang toils on many thankless tasks that make us such a force in the industry. While my face and my words are sprawled across the Internet, my colleagues are generating revenue-making products … and revenue. They’re setting schedules, nagging me to meet those schedules, working with advertisers, managing CE Pro 100 lists and other major research projects, spreading themselves among many publications and business units, dealing with politics at HQ … and still cranking out a whole lot of great content.
They’re also the ones apologizing for “that thing that Julie wrote.”
So you see, the things I personally do that make me appear worthy of being a CEDIA Fellow … are the things the whole CE Pro team does together.
Thank you all for the privilege of being part of this fantastic industry!
