Conclave Webinar Attendees To Earn Important FCC/EEO Certification
April 23, 2012 at 3:21 AM (PT)
On WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25th at 2p CT, THE CONCLAVE will conduct the third in a series of webinars dealing with laws and regulations every broadcaster should know. Sponsored by BROADCAST1SOURCE, "Rules of Radio 3 -- EEO ESSENTIALS" features GREGG SKALL of WOMBLE, CARLYLE, SANDRIDGE & RICE/WASHINGTON, D.C., and BROADCAST1SOURCE VP/GM LISA FIELDS, who will present on overview of EEO practices.
Those listening to the webinar will be able to earn documentation of attendance, certifying that they as management level personnel for their stations have participated in a training program regarding FCC’s EEO rules and requirements.
Says SKALL, "Under broadcasting’s EEO Rules, the FCC adopted supplemental outreach requirements for broadcasters. They require broadcasters to engage in a specified number of activities selected from a menu of options, such as job fairs, community events relating to broadcast employment, internship programs, scholarships, and similar activities. These activities are designed to encourage outreach to persons who may not be aware of the opportunities available in broadcasting and to educate station management about the program and how it works. One of these options consists of providing training to management level personnel as to methods of ensuring equal employment opportunity and preventing discrimination. This webinar is designed to do that, and attendance will earn the participant a certificate recognized by the FCC verifying that training. That’s an important document as a station builds its mandated file to prove it is meeting its EEO requirements."
CONCLAVE webinars are free; however preregistration is required via the Conclave’s website at www.theconclave.com.
