My name  is  Chad  Roberts  and  I  am  currently  the  Audio  Labs  Manger  at   Central  Michigan  University.      The  majority  of  my  time  is  spent  advising  the  students   of  two  separate,  student-­‐‑run,  radio  stations.    The  AAA  format  Mountain  91.5  and  the   Hip-­‐‑Hop  format  Beat  101.1.    I  started  at  CMU  in  April  of  2010,  before  that  I  spent   five  years  as  the  Student  Media  Advisor  at  Simpson  College  in  Iowa.    At  Simpson,  I   was  the  advisor  for  a  student  newspaper,  yearbook  and  radio  station.

I  believe  that  I  am  qualified  for  the  position  of  BEA  Convention  Program  Chair   because  I  have  been  on  the  board  of  the  Student  Media  Advisors  Division  for   the  last  four  years,  two  years  as  Vice-­‐‑Chair  and  I  am  currently  finishing  my  two  year   rotation  as  Chair  this  year.    I  have  enjoyed  working  with  my  colleagues  in  this   division  as  well  as  with  people  at  Broadcast  Education  Association  headquarters.  I   feel  that  I  get  along  well  with  everyone  and  am  someone  that  is  easy  to  reach  out   and  talk  to.

In  my  time  at  Simpson  College,  I  was  President  of  the  Iowa  College  Media   Association  for  three  years.    That  job  entailed  me  getting  everything  set  for  our   media  convention  that  took  place  in  Des  Moines  every  February.    That  job  helped  me   to  become  more  organized  and  detail-­‐‑oriented.      I  had  to  organize  workshops,  set  up   panel  presentations  and  I  ran  and  emceed  the  Iowa  College  Media  Association   Awards  ceremony  to  honor  all  the  outstanding  student  work  in  the  state  for  the   given  year.      I  was  also  in  charge  of  taking  in  all  student  entries  for  the  awards  and   getting  them  sent  out  to  judges  for  judging.
Thank  you  for  your  consideration  for  this  prestigious  position

Sincerely,
Chad  Roberts
