SBE begins annual member recruitment effort

The Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) will conduct its annual membership drive March 1 through May 31, 2004. Members are urged to "Invite your friends to the party!" in recognition of the SBE’s 40th anniversary, and bring new members into the Society. Though SBE accepts new members all year long, the membership drive is an annual special effort to recruit television engineers and those in related fields to the organization.

Current SBE members can win prizes and discounts on future membership dues by participating. New members will also be entered into a drawing for a valuable prize.

Details on the membership drive are available through the SBE National Office. Contact Angel Bates at 317-846-9000 or visit

SBE has more than 5,500 members in 107 chapters across the United States. There are also members in 30 other countries. Most chapters meet monthly and offer educational programs and an opportunity to network with their peers. SBE also offers the largest and most accepted certification program for broadcast engineers, operators and technicians.
