To show our appreciation for our volunteers, we turn the spotlight on them from time to time and learn what drives them day in and day out. Today, we meet volunteer Jason Knott of EH Publishing, Inc. in Framingham, MA.
A volunteer since 2011, Knott currently volunteers in support of CEDIA training initiatives.
Why do you volunteer?
It helps connect me more closely with the industry.
What’s your favorite CEDIA memory?
I have been doing educational seminars for many years. It makes me feel great whenever I hear from an integrator who tells me that they did something I recommended and it helped their business.
What’s your advice for new volunteers?
Take the perspective of learning from the volunteer work for your own benefit.
