New York becomes the sixth VES Section - joining Australia, New Zealand, London, San Francisco and Vancouver as premiere centers of production with members working in all areas of entertainment from film, television, commercials, computer graphics, music videos, and games. Members participating in this Section are based in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. In order to qualify for official Section status, 50 regional VES members had to organize and petition the VES Board of Directors for recognition.
The New York Section will focus its short term goals on establishing member education and mentoring programs, organizing and hosting creative and technical panels, and expanding local membership in the region.
