January 2018 President's Corner

Today marks an important milestone in planning for the annual conference in Las Vegas, the release of the preliminary schedule for BEA2018, with a spotlight on: Inclusive Media.

A Holiday Bonus: A Second December 2017 President's Corner

In my final column for the 2017 calendar year, I wanted to provide a quick update on activities at the fall board of directors meeting, which was held at the NAB building in Washington, DC the weekend before Thanksgiving. This annual two-day fall board meeting is when the bulk of the board’s work is handled.

A number of committees are working on initiatives for this year—e.g. Diversity and Inclusion, Membership, Research, Publications and Festival, to name a few—which they reported on. I don’t have space to highlight all the work that these committees are tasked with, but I will briefly mention a few highlights. The Membership Committee is working on ides to recruit new faculty and graduate student members to the organization. The Research Committee and Research Enhancement Committee are working on ways to increase the amount and rigor of research presented at the annual conference. The Festival Committee and Festival Advisory Committee will be announcing new student and faculty categories for the 2019 Festival of Media Arts. In the coming months, these committees will also unveil plans to showcase more faculty work during the 2019 Festival, while preserving the sanctity of the acceptance rates. Read More…

After the film, we can discuss what we've learned and debate if it lives up to its reputation as the best film by Hollywood’s most successful director!

For over 60 years the BEA has worked with the National Association of Broadcasters in creating the next generation of media professionals. BEA’s annual convention has been a major part of this endeavor. Co-located next door in the Westgate Hotel and Casino, BEA brings in over 1,300 educators each year and they descend upon NAB Show’s floor to see first-hand the latest and greatest tools and technology needed to teach students. Each year, schools direct BEA members to come to Vegas, either to spend the remainder of that year’s money or find the products to help teach the current technologies and techniques that they will buy in the fall with new funds.
