2018 NETA Conference - Educate. Engage.

 
Educate. Engage. Announcing the first public broadcasting conference of 2018!
2018 NETA, January 22-24 in Washington at the Marriott Marquis hotel.
     
Come for three days intensely devoted to public media's mission of education and  community engagement from every angle: resources, management, marketing, content creation, social media, evaluation, fundraising, distribution, and more.
    
Even if you have never attended a NETA conference before, this is the one to attend. Education and engagement are at the heart of public media. With our partners at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, PBS, and APTS, this gathering will be a powerhouse start for 2018.
  
We'll be in touch with more details soon.
2018 NETA. Educate. Engage.

Big thanks to our generous supporter!
