“I am honored to have been chosen to lead our board,” noted Weinstein, pictured. “The opportunity to work creatively and synergistically to support Daryl Friedman and the CEDIA staff has never been greater. With residential spaces more central to people’s lives than ever before, CEDIA is in a great position to foster continued industry growth for our valued members. My sincere gratitude goes to Jamie, Michael, Alex, and Rob and the entire board for joining me as we work with our new CEO to take CEDIA to the next level.”

According to the organisation, the selections represent the board’s iterative approach to create a well-rounded body that truly represents the diversified and global community of CEDIA professionals.
