NRB Changes Dates For 2015 Convention
April 23, 2014 at 11:59 AM (PT)
NATIONAL RELIGIOUS BROADCASTERS (NRB) announce that they have changed the dates of the next convention to MONDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd - THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26th, 2015.
NRB Pres./CEO DR. JERRY A. JOHNSON explained, “After much prayer, thought, input and discussion, I am pleased to announce that the 2015 NRB Convention has been changed from a SATURDAY-to-TUESDAY event to a MONDAY-to-THURSDAY event. The vast majority of leaders from across the association were in favor of this move, and we are very optimistic of the positive impact the decision will have on the convention’s attendance and on the convention program itself.”
The NRB International Christian Media Convention takes place every year and draws a wide range of participants, including radio and TV station owners and operators, pastors, church media professionals, radio and TV program producers, college educators, students, film producers, web and mobile developers, social media managers, marketing representatives, and ministry staff members.
The dates have been changed to allow more church pastors, church media professionals, and music ministry leaders to attend. The decision also allows media professionals who attend the convention as part of their job function to have the weekend to spend with their families.
Though last year’s convention was the most-attended convention in the past five years, NRB leaders felt the latest change was necessary as part of a larger effort to revitalize the world’s largest annual gathering of Christian communicators.
NRB Chairman/BILL BLOUNT said, “Unless they are preaching or presenting at the NRB Convention, most of these church leaders simply will not skip a SUNDAY for the event. For many who have wanted to attend the convention but were unable to because of commitments to their churches and families, this decision is good news indeed!”
More details and registration information will be released later this SPRING and will be available at the convention website, NRBconvention.org.
NRB 2015 will be held at the GAYLORD OPRYLAND RESORT AND CONVENTION CENTER in NASHVILLE.
