THE SOCIETY is the growth of thirty-eight years of achievement
and leadership. Its members are engineers and technicians skilled
in every branch of motion-picture film production and use, in tele-
vision, and in the many related arts and sciences. Through the
Society they are able to contribute effectively to the technical
advance of their industry.

Technical committees and regular conventions are a medium by which

members exchange technical information and develop standards ana
techniques for the betterment of the art and their profession.

Tesf fll mSf produced and distributed by the Society, give the industry

and exhibitors essential standards for motion-picture production and

exhibition. _ ,

. Publications disseminate the results of members' work. Hie monthly

Journal of the Society is the standard reference source for motion-picture
and television engineers all over the world.

Membership is open in the following three grades:

AcnVe members receive the Journal, are privileged to vote, hold office,
serve on committees or as chairmen; they are, in general, engineers,
executives and others who have had at least three years' experience m
the motion-picture or television industries.

Associate members receive the Journal and are invited to participate in
