WABE 2018 Planning Underway Help Needed

Summer is well underway, and I hope you are getting a chance to get away and enjoy the sunshine and warm temperatures we have been experiencing. I just spent a week at in Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba with my extended family, a couple of Black Bears and huge mosquitoes. I had forgotten how big the grow mosquitoes in Manitoba.

The WABE committee is hard at work planning an amazing convention for you in Vancouver on November 4, 5 and 6 at a brand-new location, the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel. The new location is 15 minutes from the airport and the WABE hotel room rate is only $179.00.

Chris Larke and David Linder are this year’s paper chairs and they are planning some interesting papers. They do have a few more slots to fill, so if you have an idea or suggestions for a paper, they would welcome your ideas. The rest of the planning committee would all welcome your suggestions and comments for this year’s convention as well.

Here is a link for our contact information.

We also could use your help if you have 10 minutes. We need your suggestions for people you think should be recognized for their work in or supporting the broadcast Industry in Western Canada. You will find more information about the WABE awards and be able to nominate someone you feel deserves some recognition at this year’s convention on the WABE website.

Here is the link for more information on the WABE awards and the nomination form.

Finally, I want to say we are looking forward to seeing you all in Vancouver in November at the WABE 2018 convention. Oh, they also promised me the outside pool and garden area will be open!

WABE President
