On Saturday, Dec 5th at 12 pm PST, we held the first-ever virtual CAS Annual Membership Meeting and Holiday Mixer. Members and guests were greeted with the debut of our Year in Review video and teaser for our upcoming virtual awards event. Once all were settled into the meeting space, there were brief greetings from key committees’ chairs. As attendees mingled from virtual table to virtual table, door prizes were awarded randomly to those in attendance every 15 minutes. Prizes included gift cards to Lectrosonics and LMC Sound, an X2P from Focusrite, a Stingray Utility Hip Pack from KTEK, an Everything Native Pack from McDSP, a Sound Ideas General Series 6000, Elite Monitor Headphones and multiple licenses of Absentia DX and Actors Mobile ADR Editor Pro and Standard licenses.
CAS 2020 Membership Meeting and Holiday Mixer
The interface, custom-designed just for the event, felt like a reception hall where guests mingled with their friends at their leisure, hopping between tables of 2, 4, and 6 seats. A lovely result of the virtual event was the attendance of those from outside of Los Angeles. During the 2-hour event we had members and their guests from all over the United States, as well as the UK and Columbia. Over 3/4 of the attendees stayed on for over 90 minutes of the 2-hour event. At our close, 70% of attendees were still chatting away.
We consider the event an incredible success, although there was one consistent piece of criticism: The event was just too short. We are so delighted to hear that everyone enjoyed visiting with one another and will make sure to allow for more time in the future. A big thanks to all who participated. It was a fantastic way to cap off our 2020 events.
