New York State Broadcasters Association Cancels Convention

Yet another casualty of the economy is THE NEW YORK STATE BROADCATERS ASSOCIATION annual SUMMER convention, which has been cancelled for 20009.
Said Pres. JOSEPH A. REILLY, "Unfortunately, it’s true. The NYSBA Board of Directors after much debate and discussion, voted to postpone this year’s summer conference. This decision was not made lightly. While there are points to be made on both sides, the majority cited the current economic climate and the focus on expense control, combined with the perception that having the conference might project the wrong message. We fully hope and expect this will be a one year hiatus."
