The Society of Broadcast Engineers said its latest recruitment drive added 47 individual members and two sustaining members to the association.
This year’s campaign ran March through May, with the theme “Add Power to Your Profession.” Current members were incentivized to help drive recruitment with prize donations from sustaining member companies and a discount on membership dues for each new member they bring in.
SBE membership now stands at approximately 4,500 people.
The grand prize for the membership drive is a trip to the SBE National Meeting this fall, or a cash prize option. The winner of that was Cris Alexander, CPBE, AMD, DRB, of Crawford Broadcasting, who is also tech editor of Radio World Engineering Extra.
Prizes were donated by Blackmagic Design, Comark, Davicom/Comlab, Dielectric, Heartland Video Systems, LBA, Orban, Shively Labs, Telos Alliance and Tieline.
