SBE Chapter 14 Dinner Meeting
"Satellite AMC 8: A Migration Survival Guide".

When: Wednesday, February 15th, 6:30 PM     

Many radio stations receive their programming from radio networks on satellite  AMC-8   Several of the major US radio networks, including Westwood One, Learfield, Orbital Media Networks, and Skyview Networks, have joined forces to proactively determine the best replacement for their satellite, AMC-8.  The satellite will be replaced by AMC-18, which will be in different location.  For stations that get programming from those networks on AMC-8, they must start planning for this transition.
Steve Welch, President of Communications Link Service Corp, will be sponsoring the meeting and giving a presentation on Satellite AMC 8: A Migration Survival Guide.  He will cover why the change is needed and what broadcasters must do to prepare.  This a combined event between the Connecticut Valley SBE14 and the CBA (Connecticut Broadcaster Association).
The meeting is open to both members and non-members.
The meeting will be at Jim's Family Restaurant & Pizzeria, 124 Poquonock Ave., Windsor, CT 06095
Dinner will be at 6:30pm and the presentation will start at 7pm. 
To  try have an accurate head count for dinner, please RSVP to SBE Chapter Fred Krampits at fkrampits@stcc.edu by Friday, February 10th.  (yup, this Friday).  You won't be turned away for not RSVP'ing, but it helps make sure we have enough food for this combined event.

Hope to see you there. Bring a friend!

     Certification Co-Chair Buc Fitch send reminds us of the following:
     Winter is the big study and prep season so might I suggest a little note in our SBE notices that "if you fail to plan, you plan to fail".
     February 3-13, 2017 Local Chapters Deadline for application December 31, 2016
     April 25, 2017 NAB Show Las Vegas Deadline etc March 17, 2017
     Time to make preparations by studying, taking some sample test/questions and applying on time ... NAB is a great goal because it gives you an activity there and a solid reason to go to the show.
