The Conclave announces it is seeking volunteers to give back to the radio industry, as well as guide broadcasters. "It’s time that we look at what we do with fresh eyes," says Bob Shannon, Executive Director of the Conclave. "By all measures, Conclave 38, this year’s learning conference, was a successful event for those who attended. But, after review, the Conclave board and I have concluded that we have to do more…not only with our convention but with all of our initiatives: our scholarship programs, our ongoing commitment to education, and especially getting financial support from the entire industry." He added, "I may be a dreamer, but I’m not the only one who believes that what we do matters. And so today, I’m reaching out to ask for volunteers who are willing to stand up for the Conclave by volunteering 15-minutes of brain storming power." If you’re interested in helping the Conclave figure out what’s next, please reach out to Shannon at email@example.com or call 952-927-4487.
