Promoting and Advocating for Nevada's Broadcasters, While Serving the Public.
Statewide Public Warning/Public Information Training Conference
Please consider joining fellow Broadcasters, Emergency Managers, law enforcement and public safety officials on December 9th at the Atlantis Hotel in Reno for the Statewide Public Warning/Public Information Training Conference.
Broadcasters of Nevada are an integral part of communicating important safety information to our viewers and listeners during times of emergency so you all play a significant role in this effort.
Governor Sandoval's Homeland Security Advisor, Caleb Cage will speak at this conference. He recently recognized Nevada's Broadcasters for "playing an important role in public information about programs to reduce the terrorism risk."
In addition to speakers and EAS/AMBER Alert training, Adrienne Abbott, Nevada EAS Chair, will present the 2015 EAS Plan.
The NAB has supplied the Nevada Broadcasters Association with the following preliminary state and congressional election dates. We advise stations to consult with their local and state election officials to verify all election dates. Stations should also consult with local counsel to obtain information on party caucuses to determine if the Lowest Unit Charge (LUC) window applies.
The general election will be held on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2016. The LUC window for the general election will open FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2016. For more information, please consult the NAB Broadcast Catechism, 18th edition, or call the NAB legal department at (866) 682-0276.
These dates are for Nevada. If you would like to see the listings for all the states, you can download the PDF here.
