Membership Benefits

AIR offers a range of services and resources to support audio and media makers. Our members continually remind us that the most significant benefit of belonging to AIR is the intangible feeling of community they experience through the AIR Community Forums, virtual mingles, and other AIR initiatives that bring our members together across the world.
