Past Presidents of NASBA

The Broadcast Executive Directors have existed as an informal group ever since the first executive directors of state associations started getting together to talk about mutual challenges and acheivements. We began meeting regularly at the NAB's Leadership Conferences each year and those informal meetings eveolved into a day set aside for us to meet and discuss whatever is a burning issue at the time. In November 1985, BEDA was formally organized to enchance "internal educational opportunities for members."
