The SBE is made up of a multitude of volunteers. There are seven employees who work at the National Office, but the real momentum behind the SBE is those who dedicate their personal time to further the goals and objectives of broadcast engineering through the SBE. This includes, but is not limited to, the Board of Directors, all the various SBE committees in addition to the Certification Committee, and the local chapters including the chapter certification chairs.
At the spring Membership Meeting at the 2018 NAB Show, the SBE recognized the local certification chairmen who devote volunteer time to the Program of Certification. These local certification chairmen receive a plaque on the recurring five-year anniversaries. What follows is a list of those who were recognized at the meeting in April. Thank you very much to all the volunteers who devote so many hours to the SBE and the certification program.
