CBI will also be conducting a special pre-convention workshop, FCC-101 on Wednesday.  This overview of FCC rules and regs is a must for all those managing student radio stations licensed by the FCC.  This fast paced workshop will familiarize you with the FCC rules and regulations, provide resources and answer the questions you haven’t even thought to ask!

Highlights –

  • Hundreds of sessions and events for all student media which allows for collaboration, stealing ideas, education, and networking

As we do every year, CBI presents sessions on innovative topics, the basics and how to keep your station compliant with the regulations. Unfortunately, this year, CBI needs to highlight a number of sessions due to the sale of various student stations around the country. While we have one session specifically dealing with the issues surrounding the sales, we have chosen to highlight sessions that are highly relevant to help stations prevent the same scenario from happening with your license, if you have one. Every session is important. Every station needs to maintain, improve or create a reason for continued support. On this page, sessions specifically geared towards aiding licensed stations with compliance and potential sale related issues are designated with a *. Your convention program will also highlight these sessions for you.

Despite the tragic loss of highly visible and popular student station licenses, CBI, like you, forges ahead making the best of the situation and trying to help you and your station reach your potential. CBI IS optimistic about the future of student media and we want to share that optimism with you and show you how to succeed! This three day fall national conference is unparallelled in helping stations like yours!

Among many additions to the session list this year are sessions that are specifically aimed at helping H.S. and TV stations!  Tell us what you want from CBI at future conventions.   This is a highly educational event that allows you to meet industry professionals, expert advisers, and network with peers.  All these opportunities happen with abundance, in a fantastic setting and over a three day period which allows you to come back with more questions.
