International Interactive Communications Society

January 1982January 1984 (2 years 1 month)

Founder of the International Interactive Communications Society (IICS), a professional trade association for companies and individuals involved in interactive multimedia. This organization traces its early roots to the days of interactive laser disc production in the San Francisco Bay Area during the 1980s. Originally the society was proposed as a special interest group of the International Television Association (ITVA) now known as Media Communications Association – International (MCA-I) but the charter members (composed of equipment vendors, independent producers, training professionals and members of Apple's IIe computer group, Sony's SMC-70 computer & interactive laser disc groups and Pioneer's interactive laser disc groups) decided to establish the society as an independent entity with different membership requirements for the new interactive and computer based communications.

In its heyday they had hundreds of members in the San Francisco Bay Area and thousands of members worldwide with chapters in Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington DC and New York City.
