Christian Media Leaders Gather to Plan for NRB15 Convention

Dr. Jerry A. Johnson speaking at 2014 Advisory Council MeetingsAround 100 Christian media and ministry leaders from across the nation gathered in the Washington, DC metro area last week for the spring 2014 Advisory Council Meetings.

There, Advisory Council members planned for the NRB 2015 International Christian Media Convention, which will be held February 23-26, 2015, in Nashville, TN.

“The council members worked hard and are well on their way to creating programs that will be immeasurably beneficial to the Christian communications community,” remarked NRB Director of Membership Melissa Sturgis. “These are exciting times!”

After gathering last Wednesday evening  for a welcome reception, members of the Advisory Councils heard the next morning from NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, who set the tone for the meetings that day and for the weeks to come.

In an hour-long address, Dr. Johnson presented the many changes to the Convention program and invited Advisory Council members to bring their best ideas and “world class” suggestions to the table to make the next Convention the best to date.

“We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead to make this the best Convention ever,” commented NRB Director of Conventions & Expositions Beth Wakefield.

After the morning meeting, the Advisory Councils broke out into their respective areas - Church Media, Film, Intercollegiate (iNRB), International, Internet, Radio, and Television. Throughout the day, the councils discussed various convention program elements, including the networking events, schedule, speakers, and sponsors.

Following the Advisory Council Meetings were meetings of the NRB Standing Committees, which assembled to make specific plans and assignments for the upcoming Convention and for the Annual Media Awards program.

While Advisory Councils are open to all Christian media professionals and ministry personnel to join, Standing Committees consist of elected members who dedicate themselves to advancing the overall mission of NRB and to serving the unique interests of specific constituencies within the NRB family.
