Register now for the first public broadcasting conference of 2018!
2018 NETA.
Educate. Engage.
January 22-24 in Washington at the Marriott Marquis hotel.
     
Look at the lineup for the Public Media Thought Leader Forum which kicks off this year's meeting. Come for three days devoted expressly to public media's mission of education and  community engagement from every angle: resources, management, marketing, content creation, social media, evaluation, fundraising, and distribution.
