We are only a few months away from the Iowa Broadcasters Association Convention, June 13. This year the convention will again be held at the Marriott in West Des Moines.
One of the highlights of our annual summer convention each year, is the Awards Luncheon and the honor of recognizing Iowa broadcasters who make a difference. There are so many great stories of leadership, integrity, reliability, service over self, team building and mentoring across the state. Local broadcasters make such a difference in the lives of our listeners and viewers and we want to recognize those who stand out in your organization and all across the state.
Each year we honor individuals deserving of induction into the IBA Hall of Fame. This is a special group of people who have led their organizations and their communities, leaving a legacy of impact behind.
We also present our Iowa “Broadcaster of the Year” award. This is a noteworthy honor as we recognize Iowa broadcasters in on-air and leadership roles who have made an impact on their stations and local community through their work. As we know, broadcasting is a noble profession. Our listeners and viewers rely on us for news, entertainment, live sports, and weather information. This is a great opportunity to recognize a colleague you think best exemplifies this service.
Please make sure you consider anyone who stands out and submit your nomination(s) following the guidance provided.
The 2019 IBA Awards Nomination materials are attached. As 2019 Awards Chair, we are asking for your help in publicizing this information- Please hang up the attached 2019 IBA AWARDS POSTER at your station(s) and encourage your employees to participate in the nominating process.
Thank you for your service and for your help with this important event.
