NAB2004 attendees will have the opportunity to hear from members of Congress at two separate convention events. On April 19, six members of the 108th Congress will be featured panelists at the Congressional Breakfast held at the Las Vegas Hilton. Sen. Conrad Burns, R-Mont.; House Commerce Chairman Joe Barton, R-Texas; House Judiciary Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis.; House Telecommunications Subcommittee Chairman Fred Upton, R-Wis.; and Reps. Michael Bilirakis, R-Fla. and Greg Walden, R-Wash. will participate in the annual breakfast discussion including topics such as free airtime legislation, broadcast ownership, satellite radio, Internet streaming and the digital transition.
Phil Lombardo, founder and CEO, Citadel Communications Co., and chairman of the NAB Joint Board will moderate the panel.
Also that day during a congressional staff panel, seven congressional aides will discuss the behind-the-scenes, decision-making process on Capitol Hill. These staffers, who advise key members of the House and Senate Commerce Committees, specialize in broadcast and telecommunications policy.
On April 18, Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., will be the featured speaker at the Broadcast Leadership Dinner (invitation only) at the Bellagio Hotel.
NAB2004 takes place April 17 - 22 in Las Vegas.
