ACUI Virtual Conference Spotlight!

By Sayma Tasnim

Published 12/7/2020

Howard Gunston presented at the ACUI virtual conference on November 12th, 2020 about The Quest for Consistency in a Socially-Distanced Event Center! ACUI is the professional home to thousands of campus community builders around the world. Primarily focused on the work of those within the college unions and student activities field, the Association strives to provide an inclusive, welcoming community for all those who choose to belong.

The decreased engagement on campus has made it difficult to plan and manage Covid-19 friendly events causing many unprepared outcomes. Howard discussed the appropriate response to the pandemic and how to combat issues concerning rules and regulations for events while also keeping students safe on campus. He addressed the importance of staying consistent for the time being while the future is still unpredictable.

This is the 3rd year in a row that Howard has presented at ACUI, presenting in March of 2019 and October of 2018!

 Recently, we sat down with our A/V Coordinator, Michael Ingenito to give us his insight about the novel updates to our renowned Sidney Gelder Auditorium,  Ballroom spaces and Union meeting rooms. These remarkable efforts established state of the art audio-visual systems in our large   programming spaces. The Auditorium received a full digital audio and video renovation with upgraded   equipment and software systems. This includes Touch Screen HD Video Control, a 64 Channel Digital Mixing Board, Reinforced Speakers, Digital Equalization, and wireless video and audio projection. These renovations allow for simple streaming, versatile adaptations, and an enhanced listening experience. 

Our goal is to ensure the success of events and the delivery of excellent services. With these renovations, we hope to amplify the technological quality of current and future events. Please familiarize yourself with our tutorial videos !
