Canceled: 2020 MBA Convention and Awards Banquet
June 5 - June 6
2020 Convention & Awards Banquet Canceled
The MBA Board of Directors has approved the cancellation of this year’s convention and awards program. Even if stay-at-home orders were lifted, many broadcasters are cutting expenses and others will still be uncomfortable in a large group.
We are committed to offering you as many training and networking opportunities as we can from a safe social distance. To that end, we are offering more webinars than ever before, all at no cost to our members. Please watch our events, check your email, or connect with us on Twitter and Facebook, to stay informed. We have also started a private Facebook Group for our members to exchange ideas and network during this pandemic. Please contact us on Facebook or email Stephanie at email@example.com to be added to the group.
What about the awards?
Judging for the MBA Awards is still in process and those awards will still be presented. Finalists will be posted on our website on Tuesday, April 21st at 4PM, and once social distancing restrictions of 10 or more people have been lifted, we will personally present the awards to each station.
We are not ready to make a decision yet as to the presentation of the Hall of Fame and other special awards. We may schedule a smaller awards program later this year, or delay presenting those awards until next year’s banquet.
The Sales Awards program will be postponed until next year. We will return the entry fees for those who have submitted in those categories.
What if I’ve already booked my hotel room?
The Lodge of Four Seasons will cancel all reservations associated with the convention, so if you have already made your reservation you will soon receive a cancellation notice.
We have begun our planning for the 2021 convention, including bringing back many of the speakers that were planning to come this year. We can’t wait to see you all again in Branson for 2021.
