President's Message

Start making your plans now to attend the annual the Western Association of Broadcast Engineers annual convention.  This year’s convention will be held in downtown Edmonton at the Shaw Conference Centre from Oct 26th to 28th, 2014.

The convention has a long-standing history and is the place to be for meeting exhibitors, catching up with colleagues in both formal and more relaxed atmospheres.

We have a dedicated committee who will ensure this year to be another outstanding show to attend.

WABE is very thankful for the generous support each year from the exhibitors, delegates and volunteers, but the show would not be possible without our sponsors. The committee and organization truly appreciates the support shown towards this event from our sponsors each year.

The formed committee each year is always accepting nominees for the various awards handed out.  If you know of a deserving person or group, please send a note to info@wabe.ca.

Please note, this year is an election year.  The WABE Executive Committee will have an opening for the Secretary/Treasurer position.  Names of nominees (WABE members) can be sent in to info@wabe.ca.

Thank you again for everyone’s support.  I, along with the committee, look forward to seeing everyone in Edmonton.

Brian Mayer
