The AES serves its members, the industry and the public, by stimulating and facilitating advances in the constantly changing field of audio. It encourages and disseminates new developments through annual technical meetings and exhibitions of professional equipment, and through the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, the professional archival publication in the audio industry.

AES sections serve members in 41 concentrated geographical areas throughout the world. Sections in Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan, Mexico, South America, and the United States hold meetings regularly for the dissemination of the most current audio information. Liberal interchange of section meeting data keeps all sections abreast of new developments internationally. This give-and-take among sections is vital to an informed worldwide membership and offers a distinct advantage to those industry personnel who are members. AES members within the area of a particular section automatically receive notice of such meetings. The sections also provide fertile ground for developing new officers in the society through service at the local level.
