ASACP to Participate in Digital Coast Holiday Reception

Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) will be among the different associations participating in the 7th Annual Digital Coast Holiday Reception, an event focusing on the convergence of film, music, media, and other industries and technology in the Digital Coast region (San Diego to Santa Barbara).

The organization will join the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, Internet Society, Interactive Television Alliance, LARTA Institute, National Association of Record Industry Professionals, the Software Council, and the Writers Guild of America.

In addition to senior executives and leaders who come together to discuss opportunities and challenges and to share solutions, the Digital Coast Roundtable solicits organizations, associations, and guilds to collaborate on events, initiatives, and public policy.

“DCR events facilitate access to other associations, ideas, and the people who are responsible for how the adult industry is portrayed in movies and television,” says ASACP Executive Director Joan Irvine. “Because of the blurring lines in entertainment, it is important that mainstream companies are aware of how the industry uses technology to protect children and its best practices.

“I first attended DCR when I was the vice president of membership at an association of digital professionals,” she continues. “I found these events to be both educational and a good way to meet and learn from a variety of people. We are all dealing with similar issues, and one of ASACP’s goals is to open the lines of communication.”
