The Conclave Needs Your Help In The New Year
December 11, 2013 at 4:36 AM (PT)
BOB SHANNON, Executive Director of THE CONCLAVE, the TWIN CITIES-based non-profit that has served the broadcasting industry for the past 38 years, is looking for more people and input about how The CONCLAVE can best be used going forward.
"It's time that we look at what we do with fresh eyes," SHANNON said, adding that last SUMMER's Learning Conference was a successful event for those who attended but that "THE CONCLAVE board and I have concluded that we have to do more, not only with our convention and the other things we do, including our scholarship programs and our ongoing commitment to education, but also to getting financial support from the entire industry."
SHANNON, Executive Director since 2012, admits it's a dichotomy: "Radio, indeed all media, faces daunting changes and challenges. We get that. But, to forgo the training and the networking opportunities that have always been the CONCLAVE's calling card is self-defeating for a community that's always grown by encouraging its young and giving them a launching pad for success."
SHANNON is encouraging volunteers to join THE CONCLAVE for "15 minutes of brainstorming power."
