Vosburgh, owner of JCS Video Productions, gets interviewed
about the ITVA-MCA membership. Mr. Vosburgh recalls
getting invitations years ago to join the ITVA. "At
first, I really did not think much about it. I had joined
the Better Business Bureau and the Las Vegas Chamber
of Commerce, but at the time, didn't know about the
benefits of an ITVA-MCA membership."
A few years later, Mr. Vosburgh was approached by a
business acquaintance, who was not only an active member,
but would soon be elected Chapter President. Vosburgh
says, "She stressed that it would be a great place to
meet other high-end production people, and that they
could share a lot of good production tricks with me.
Wow! Was she ever right!"
Soon afterward, Mr. Vosburgh became an official member
of the ITVA where he met John Scott, owner of Image-Nation.
They soon began working together on several productions.
"John handles most of the interactive multimedia, and
I handle the video. It's a great business relationship.
John and I, as well as most of the ITVA members, share
the same business values."
In 1999, Mr. Vosburgh was elected Vice President of
the ITVA's Las Vegas Chapter and in June 2000, he was
elected President. He has subsequently been re-elected
President twice, in 2001 and 2003. Mr. Vosburgh feels
it has been well worth the investment. "It has paid
off in the long run. The people you meet really help
you advance technically in the industry." A little over
one year ago the ITVA was renamed MCA-I (Media Communications
Association International). The name change was made
to reflect the more diverse people involved in the Television
trade industry. "They really increased the benefits
they offer their members. I would highly recommend joining
to anyone in the field. It certainly has made a difference
in my life."
