Ennes Workshops

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Cleveland Ennes Workshop! I appreciated the diversity of information and the people in attendance from different areas of broadcast technology. It is always nice to congregate with your peers in technology. Sometimes the individual personal experiences shared in person can be just as educational as the program that brought you together!"

- Louis Johnson IV, CPBE

What are Ennes Workshops?

The Ennes Workshops were created in 1991 through the Ennes Educational Foundation Trust in an effort to bring affordable education to members locally. The Ennes Educational Foundation Trust, through its Education Foundation Committee, offers periodic workshops and seminars around the United States. Programs are typically one day in length (app. 9 a.m.-5 p.m.) and are very affordable. These programs feature multiple topics and speakers that provide television and radio engineers with the latest information in broadcast and media technology.

NOW ACCEPTING PAPERS FOR THE ENNES WORKSHOPS

The Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) offers non-commercial, technical workshops throughout the year. Ennes Workshops are designed to attract broadcast engineers and engineering management from within several hundred miles to a one-day educational program.

Attendance ranges from 35-65. Workshops are planned in several cities across the U.S. each year. At times these are done in conjunction with a larger show, event or state broadcaster’s association event. Attendees are often engineers and others who do not go to the NAB Show or fall conventions.

Typically, presentations are around 45 minutes in length and there are separate radio and television program tracks for much of the day. We have great flexibility and encourage more tutorial-oriented programs of greater length, as well as topics of interest to both radio and television attendees. Presenters are selected based on providing a well balanced, informative and interesting program for those attending.

The SBE realizes that presenting at the Ennes Workshops requires a commitment of time and expense and we appreciate your contribution. This is an unique opportunity to reach a group of engineers on a personal basis in an educational setting.

To submit your topic, please send your idea in writing to:

Kristin Owens, SBE Education Director

kowens@sbe.org

Submissions should include:

Name of Presenter

Company

Topic

Description / Brief Abstract

Approximate length of presentation in minutes

Day-time telephone number and e-mail address of presenter
