President’s Corner — April 2018

With spring semester winding to a close, an allegedly more relaxed summer is on the way. According to the new BEA president, this is a great time to ask for your attention and to begin planning for another great year.

All of us, including me, have heard this before. It’s my 28th year as a member, and it will be my 11th year on the Board of Directors. I served as Interest Division representative in the early 2000s, then as District 6 representative before moving to the Executive Committee. I learned that presidents have big ideas, and they will work tirelessly with Heather, JD, and Traci to make those ideas happen. I don’t need to say that Heather, JD and Traci already work tirelessly, but I guess I just did, and I think I’d be a fool to delete it. Read More…

BEA2018 MMJ's Coverage of #BEAvegas

Take a look back at the convention through the eyes of our student MMJ team.

BEA2018

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.
