For almost 50 years, RAVA has become a truly unique organization. It is
one of the first associations of its kind anywhere in the United States.
With a mix of members who use or supply all types of visual and audio
communications tools, RAVA maintains a rare and evolving sense of perspective.
Accomplishments, which at times exceed those of larger, national groups,
testify to the quality of people involved. RAVA has sponsored topical
symposiums which have drawn national speakers and attention, has served as
regional host for national conventions, and regularly draws renowned guests for
major banquets and meetings.
Because RAVA is unaffiliated with any national groups, dues remain nominal
and yet allow for regular regional interchange. Members serve as
individuals and do not officially represent their respective companies or
All meetings are open to non-members. Come meet us at our next
gathering, like our monthly First Tuesday luncheons. And bring a friend.
RAVA is a nonprofit organization of media professionals - a community network
for sharing ideas across the growing spectrum of communications systems.
