Case is a widely published author of over one hundred articles in industry journals and trade publications, as well as two books, and is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, for which he is a frequent presenter of papers and chair of special sessions.

Case strongly endorses the AES�s goals of facilitating the advancement of audio science, professional practices and education through membership and participation in the Society�s activities at both the local section and international levels. �The greatest strength of the Audio Engineering Society is its membership,� says Case. �The diversity and depth of knowledge and professionalism in our membership is what makes the Society unique. Serving that membership with opportunities to grow and thrive is the AES�s highest calling.� The same efforts that benefit AES�s membership have positive reach beyond the Society, says Case. �The leadership of the AES in advancing the art and science of audio not only fosters progress in the audio industry, but helps improve the consumer experience of sound.�
