SBE 2021 Membership Drive Draws 49 New Members

June 30, 2021

Add Power to Your ProfessionEach year, the Society of Broadcast Engineers conducts a member recruitment drive. The drive calls on current SBE members to encourage their non-member colleagues to join the association. This year, 47 individual members and two sustaining members were recruited.

The SBE Membership Drive ran from March 1 until May 31, 2021. As a recruiting incentive to members, the SBE asks for prize donations from SBE sustaining member companies. In addition, the recruiter will earn $5 per new member (up to $25) off his or her 2022 membership dues. 10 sustaining member companies plus the SBE provided prizes this year, ranging from shirts and hats to broadcast equipment. The SBE donated logo items, a copy of CertPreview, and a free Webinars by SBE registration. The theme for the 2021 drive was Add Power to Your Profession.

All the recruiters were eligible for the Membership Drive Grand Prize: A trip the SBE National Meeting this fall. (A cash prize option is available if the winner is not able to travel to the SBE National Meeting.) That meeting is currently planned to be held during the 2021 NAB Show in Las Vegas. The Grand Prize winner this year is Cris Alexander, CPBE, AMD, DRB, of Crawford Broadcasting Company, Aurora, CO. The SBE thanks the sustaining members who provided prizes.
