Gloucestershire, UK—IABM has launched its regional councils initiative to provide local and regional support for its members. The first phase of the project has seen regional councils established in Asia-Pacific, North America and Europe. The first regional council meeting was held in Singapore during the BroadcastAsia (BCA) 2015. Meanwhile, consultant Jennie Evans has been invited to lead the UK initiative.
The aim of the IABM regional councils is to give members in their own region a voice, and bring the issues of the broadcast and media technology industry to a wider audience. The councils have also provided the association with a strong presence in each region, creating a forum for discussion and debate on issues relevant to local markets and activities.
