Speakers will include WEWN’s Terry Borders; Dr. Dowell Chow, president of Adventist World Radio; A.J. Janitschek of Radio Free Asia; Dave Hultsman of Continental Electronics and Mark Allen of Rohn Tower Co.

NASB will also provide an update on the status of Digital Radio Mondiale, and they will offer a tour of the EWTN television plant. 

There is no cost to attend the meeting or to eat lunch on Thursday and Friday, and EWTN will host a reception with cocktails and hors d’ouevres on Wednesday evening.

A group rate of $75 (plus tax) will be available at the local Holiday Inn Express, which will provide free transportation to EWTN. Additional details and online registration can be found at the NASB website.
