NRB Congratulates Newly Elected, Re-Elected Standing Committee Members

NRB has released this year’s list of members and chairmen for NRB's Standing Committees – several of whom were nominated and elected for the first time during the NRB 2013 Convention & Exposition held this past month in Nashville, TN.

Established to advance the overall mission of NRB, Standing Committees serve the unique interests of specific constituencies within the NRB family – namely, Church Media, Intercollegiate (iNRB), International, Internet, Music Licensing, Radio, and Television.

Among the ways Standing Committees render valuable and helpful assistance to the NRB are:

  • Developing educational and training opportunities made available through NRB Conventions and other venues.
  • Identifying and developing specific member benefits that will strengthen our members’ ability to fulfill their ministry purpose. 
  • Evaluating industry developments, trends, and technologies that may impact our members’ ability to fulfill their mission. 
  • Providing relevant news and information for inclusion in NRB communication devices to keep our members informed on important matters.

In addition, all Standing Committee chairmen not already on the Board of Directors serve as ex-officio members of the Board.

Next month, the Standing Committees will meet to prepare for the next Convention – to be held February 22-25, 2014.

Also gathering will be those interested in adding their voice to the open-to-all Advisory Council Meetings.

The Advisory Council Meetings and Leadership Meetings will take place May 29-31 at the Gaylord Resort & Convention Center in Nashville.

For those planning to attend, or those who are just interested in learning more, contact Judy Stephens at (703) 331-4510 or click here.
