The NAB Education Foundation says it is fine-tuning its goals, putting more emphasis on continued education for broadcasters at various stages of their careers.
“Leadership and development programs, along with a continued focus on increased diversity in broadcasting and a celebration of broadcasters’ community service efforts, will be the focus of the new, revamped NABEF mission,” it stated.
An announcement outlined areas of emphasis including its Technology Apprenticeship and Leadership Development Programs. A university-based program that launches later this year will target college students with an interest in broadcasting.
Also included are continued emphasis in diversity initiatives and promotion of broadcasters’ community service efforts.
NABEF President Marcellus Alexander said: “The NAB Education Foundation regards continued education for broadcasters as crucial for career enhancement.”
