The Community Media Association is promising this year’s conference, to be held in Leicester, will be “the most exciting in years”.
Tickets have now gone on sale for the event, which takes place at the city’s De Montfort University on Saturday 14 June. This year’s keynote speaker is Radio Academy CEO Paul Robinson, and breakout sessions will take place on local TV, community reporting and journalism techniques.
Broadcast Warehouse are the headline sponsors of the CMA Conference, and BW’s Brendan Lofty says: “We are really pleased to be associated with the CMA conference. We very much like how the CMA is developing at this very exciting time for community media.”
The theme of this year’s event is “Sound Vision” – an important subject as DCMS reviews the legislation governing community radio and the first wave of local television stations come on stream.
There will be an opportunity to hear from Dom Chambers, CMA Chair, about new developments and vision and there will be a chance to be updated by CMA staff on their work.
Chambers says: “I promise that this year will focus on helping the needs of our members as we go about the business of delivering community media with social impact. As a members led organisation this will be the opportunity for members to be part of that vibrant and visionary sector leadership the CMA is best placed to offer.”
