Events and Initiatives

NABEF reinforces its mission of encouraging broadcasters to engage in their communities by highlighting the community service efforts of broadcasters with our annual Celebration of Service to America Awards. In addition, NABEF offers events throughout the year to bring broadcasters together for networking and activities.

Highlighting Community Service
Broadcasters have long played a critical role in addressing the issues and social concerns of their local communities. Each year, the value of public service that radio and television stations generate exceeds $10 billion.

NABEF advocates community service efforts of broadcasters and their communities. NABEF's prestigious event, the Celebration of Service to America Awards, recognizes and encourages outstanding community service by broadcasters and their community partners.

NABEF Congressional Golf Classic
Each September, NABEF hosts a Congressional Golf Classic tournament. This charity event benefits the foundation's educational programs and brings broadcasters and members of Congress together for a day of golf.

NABEF/Disney Minority Vendor Networking Reception
This annual event provides women and minority-owned businesses the opportunity to feature their products and services before procurement executives in the broadcasting industry. This event allows broadcasters to diversify their vendor base and establish deeper connections within the minority businesses community.
