The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) launches the Broadcast Ambassador Program, a new volunteer initiative designed to enhance communication between the organization and its member stations’ employees in an effort to ensure stations are taking full advantage of the benefits that come with NAB membership.
In addition to assuring that member benefits are communicated to station employees, the trade group says the new program will provide important updates and help shape new NAB initiatives and benefits through feedback and insights from members, providing two-way communication between member stations and the organization.
Broadcast Ambassadors will have a direct line of communication with NAB staff, who will share information on benefits ranging from professional growth opportunities and advocacy updates to human resources tools and technical expertise. The ambassadors in turn will share this information with interested colleagues.
The position of Broadcast Ambassador is open to industry professionals in non-executive or general management positions in NAB member stations and organizations. Application information can be viewed HERE. All candidates must receive a recommendation from an NAB member station or group executive.
Broadcast Ambassadors will also offer guidance and information on NAB events, educational offerings, advocacy initiatives and other membership benefits. They will also update their colleagues and leadership on NAB’s work on behalf of local broadcasters.
“We are excited to enrich relationships with our members through this new ambassador program,” April Carty-Sipp, NAB’s Executive VP of Industry Affairs said in a release. “Ambassadors will complement our board of directors in helping to shape NAB’s goals to meet the industry’s evolving needs.”
