DIANE GOFF, who has worked at the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS for nearly 47 years -- which is believed to be the longest-serving employee in the organization's history -- will retire on FEBRUARY 29th.
Goff, who is NAB's payroll and accounts payable manager, joined the NAB Finance Department on APRIL 14th, 1969, in an administrative role making $5,000 a year. She was soon promoted to "bookkeeper" and kept accounts on green ledger papers. In her 46 years, 10 months and two weeks at NAB, Goff's duties have included financial reporting, budgets, audits, and IRS 990 forms.
NAB was formed in 1922 -- meaning that GOFF has worked at the trade association one-half of its 94 years of existence.
She was honored by NAB for her years of service at a recent staff appreciation event.
"DIANE GOFF is truly an inspiration," said NAB President/CEO GORDON SMITH. "The NAB family salutes DIANE for her dedication and years of service on behalf of AMERICA's local broadcasters. We wish her many years of happy retirement."
