NRB Announces Changes to Staff

Jennifer Gregorin and Beth WakefieldNRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson recently made some important staff announcements that will benefit both the association and the association’s annual International Christian Media Convention.

Jennifer Gregorin, who served as Associate Legal Counsel, was promoted to Special Assistant to the President. Gregorin holds a Bachelor of Science in English Education from Northland Baptist Bible College and a J.D. from Liberty University School of Law.

Also, Beth Wakefield, who served as Manager of Convention Services, was promoted to Director of Conventions & Expositions. This follows the recent retirement of former Director Tammy Singleton, who served on the NRB staff for more than 20 years. Wakefield holds a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing from West Georgia College. She has been involved in convention services since 1989.

“We are very excited about these latest staff changes,” shared Dr. Johnson.

“It is important to get the ‘right people on the bus’ and the ‘right people in the right seats’ and we’re seeing that happen,” he stated. “With all the changes and developments, it’s an exciting time for the association.”

Notably, last month, NRB announced changes to the dates of the next convention. The planned dates for the 2015 convention were originally Saturday, February 21 - Tuesday, February 24, 2015. However, to open up the convention to more church pastors, church media professionals, and music ministry leaders, the dates were changed to Monday, February 23 - Thursday, February 26, 2015.

While the details of the convention are still in the works, NRB is striving to make changes to the annual event and will be modifying the structure to make the premiere gathering of Christian broadcasters and communicators even better.

This year, NRB celebrates 70 years as an association.
