NFCB hosts in-person and virtual events for media leaders and producers. Our Community Media Conference has been a decades-long tradition in community and public media.

Our most recent virtual event videos are shared here:

Forecasting the Future of University/College Radio

Leaders at university/college media organizations are being tasked with creating change at a crucial time. What can stations do to stay viable in this climate? How can you better make the case, on campus and off, for the importance of these stations? Where do our greatest opportunities lie to ensure universities and colleges not only see the value in these organizations but also help foster growth? Our Sept. 9, 2020 roundtable participants will discuss the themes they’re seeing and offer you steps you can take to help the future of these outlets.

Racism, COVID & Climate: Media Activism + Duty in an Election Year

In this Aug. 12, 2020 panel discussion, community and public media leaders examined our role in bringing clarity, fighting misinformation, and protecting the public interest. How can media intervene in a polarized news cycle to make a difference?

The State of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion In Community and Public Media

In this July 8, 2020 panel discussion, leaders from across the noncommercial media spectrum convene to give their assessments of where we as media makers, organizers and concerned hearts and minds stand in creating change. We will appraise our status in areas such as programming, engagement, development and recruitment. We’ll also talk readiness and action. Attendees will take home essential principles and practices to build relationships of trust, accountability, and collaboration with our communities.
