The SBE launched the SBE WEBxtra in January 2019 to act as a chapter of the web for SBE members. It was created following the SBE strategic planning conference held in June 2018. Part of its objective is growing and retaining membership, attracting new and younger members to the SBE, and increasing participation in SBE activities among members.
This monthly, virtual program for member engineers, technicians and other broadcast professionals, provides information about the SBE or broadcast technology. It is not intended to replace a local chapter meeting, but SBE members who do not have a chapter near them, or have conflicts that prevent them from attending chapter meetings can view the SBE WEBxtra to stay involved.
For those holding SBE certification, viewing the SBE WEBxtra qualifies for 0.5 points in category G (attendance), just like attending a local chapter meeting.
