There is still time to recognize a broadcasting peer who has contributed to the success of an SBE chapter or broadcasting. The membership grade of SBE Fellow is the highest in the society, and it honors those who have exhibited a dedication to the advancement of the broadcast engineer, the field of broadcast engineering and the Society of Broadcast Engineers itself. To date, 76 members have been recognized with the honor in the society’s more than 50 years of existence.
To nominate a member, candidates must be proposed in writing by a voting SBE member to the Fellowship Committee. The nomination must include a comprehensive professional history of the nominee and an explanation of why the candidate is deserving of this honor. The nomination must also include the written endorsements of at least five other voting SBE members. Nominations are confidential. No others besides the nominators and the members of the Fellowship Committee should be aware of the nomination. The nominee should not know that he or she has been nominated.
Nominations for 2016 must be received no later than March 11, 2016, for consideration. The Fellowship Committee will bring the names of nominees to the Board of Directors for consideration and election at the April 2016 meeting. The SBE secretary will notify those elected. Awards will be presented at the SBE National Awards Dinner during the 2016 SBE National Meeting to be held in Columbus, OH.
Submit your nominations to: Fellowship Committee Chair Troy Pennington, CSRE, CBNT; 6156 Hampton Hall Way; Hermitage, TN 37076 or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
