The SBE exists because of the volunteer efforts of members like you at the local and national level. Each year the SBE Nominations Committee assembles a group of capable members from all corners of the field of broadcast engineering to run and serve if elected. All candidates for national office are either Regular, Senior or Life members of the SBE, or are the designated representative of an SBE Sustaining Member, and in good standing. All candidates must hold a current SBE engineering-level certification and are required to maintain that certification through all terms of office. All elected directors serve in an “at-large” capacity.
For 2013, the Nominations Committee will begin its work in February and conclude it by the end of April. Anyone wishing to be considered for candidacy for the national board should contact Vinny Lopez, CEV, CBNT, SBE Nominations Committee Chairman.
For one month beginning in late July, the election for the national board of directors will take place and will be conducted via the Internet. Members wishing to vote by mail and receive a paper ballot have the opportunity to opt out of electronic voting. Those elected will be inducted into office during the SBE National Meeting in Indianapolis on October 30, 2013.
