WINTER CONFERENCE REGISTRATION
COMPLETE CONFERENCE BROCHURE
The SCBA Winter Conference will be January 29-30, 2015 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. The conference begins Thursday morning with the Broadcast Exhibition, featuring 35 vendors representing the very latest in broadcast technology and supporting broadcast services.
Engineers will participate in joint sessions with Ron Rackley of du Treil, Lundin & Rackley, Inc. and special guest speaker, Sam Matheny, Chief Technology Officer, at the National Association of Broadcasters. The afternoon will feature breakout sessions for radio and television. Speakers will include Diana Stokey of RCS, Dennis Ford of Fiber Group, Ted Nahil of GatesAir and Philip Greenway of Santee Cooper.
Sales Account Executives will hear from Jeff Schmidt of Sparque, Inc. about advanced consulting skills that can set them apart from the competition. Selling is a contact sport – and Jeff will demonstrate how to reach the right contacts and ask the right questions.
Managers and Supervisors need to identify high performing people, who will stay around for the long haul. Merit Gest of Noll & Associates will lay out a comprehensive plan to do just that. From interview techniques, writing job postings, reviewing resumes, and ranking candidates, to designing the all-important “on-boarding” plan that will ensure the success and retention of the new hire.
On Friday evening, the annual Awards of Distinction will be presented. We hope you will join us in honoring this year’s recipients for their contributions to South Carolina broadcasting.
SCBA would like to thank the following for offering sponsorship support to our upcoming conference.

BROADCAST INSPECTION PROGRAM (ABIP)
One of the most valuable member services offered by SCBA is the Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP). Participation in the program protects your station from random FCC inspection for a period of three years. More importantly, it is a method to be certain your station is in compliance with all FCC regulations including all technical requirements and public file requirements. (Inspection excludes examination of EEO and political files.) If you do not currently hold an ABIP certificate, call SCBA today to schedule your inspection. If you do hold an ABIP certificate, be sure you check the expiration date and schedule your renewal inspection well in advance so you have no interruption in your protection. Information about how to enroll in the ABIP program is at http://www.scba.net/abip.htm Please call SCBA if you have any questions.
