Legendary singer/songwriter Paul Simon will receive the 2014 Service to America Leadership Award from the NAB Education Foundation (NABEF) for his long-time commitment to providing healthcare to underserved children across the country. Simon will receive the award at NABEF's Celebration of Service to America Gala on June 17.
Conclave Executive Director Bob Shannon resigned from the Minneapolis non-profit yesterday citing health issues. “Upon my return from the NAB late Thursday evening, I experienced a medical episode that brought paramedics to my home in the middle of the night,” said Shannon. “Fortunately, the problem wasn’t as life threatening as was originally thought, but it has prompted some soul searching on my part. Therefore, after consulting with my physician and my family, I have decided to curtail all business activities for the foreseeable future and will be resigning all of my obligations over the next few weeks. Sadly, that includes the Conclave.”
