What: SBE National Webcast
When: October 9, 2007 7:00 PM
SBE National Webcast – Tuesday, October 9th

The Society of Broadcast Engineers will present a special webcast, “The SBE and You,” on Tuesday, October 9 from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm, EDT.   The webcast will offer members and chapters an opportunity to hear directly from the SBE's national leaders on current issues and projects. Hosted by President Chriss Scherer and President–elect, Barry Thomas, the program will begin with an update on activities and a review of the SBE leadership structure. It will then cover a review of the current strategic planning process underway, provide insight into the latest educational efforts of the Society and deliver additional updates on ongoing projects and programs. The majority of the program will be devoted to an open question-and-answer session, when members can e-mail, call or instant message questions to the webcast to be answered live by the SBE officers, board members or national staff.

Individual members and SBE chapters are encouraged to participate. A link will be available to the webcast at the SBE website, www.sbe.org; activated shortly before the program begins. 

The program will emanate from the AZCAR training studios in Pittsburgh, Pa.., where that company produces broadcast engineer training programs for the Sprint/Nextel 2 GHz conversion. Our thanks to AZCAR and Sprint/Nextel for making the facilities available to SBE for this program at no cost. High-bandwidth video and audio connectivity for ‘The SBE and You’ will be provided by Jetcast streaming of New York.

We hope you will reserve this one hour in your day to “tune in” and call in.

Nominations will be accepted for the vacant board position that was recently created by Chuck Bullett's departure to San Francisco.  The election will take place at the November meeting.

Mark your calendar for December 11th at 7:00 PM!  The date for the Holiday Party has been set.  We'll see you at Phillips Seafood Restaurant at DC's waterfront.
