The Conclave teaches broadcasters who are licensed to serve in the public interest, HOW to best serve their public...YOU!
In the city, town or village that you live in, your hometown radio stations are licensed with a mandate to serve the community in many ways. For example: To share crucial details of an Amber Alert. To warn when a tornado is on the ground. To let you know why traffic is stopped on your way home. To tell you details of your community drive for blood donors. To raise money for flood victims. To conduct promotional campaigns to secure donations to feed hungry children. To inform you with news of your neighborhood. To entertain you throughout the day. Radio stations are not required by their license to train those they hire to perform these and other important responsibilities, so it's no surprise that this essential teaching is simply not occurring at either the radio station nor corporate level. There is one organization in the country recognized by the same government that grants radio licenses to educate the personnel who are needed to perform these critical tasks detailed above, and more, no matter the stations format. This same organization is responsible for awarding nearly $100,000 in scholarships annually to deserving students wishing to enter the field of broadcasting. The Conclave. If you listen to the radio and consider it a medium that informs, inspires or entertains you - or if you would like to help a student gain a scholarship in order to become a responsible broadcaster - then please consider making a donation to the organization via this important portal - GiveMN (Razoo). The Conclave is located at 4532 Douglas Drive N, Minneapolis, MN 55422. Its website is found at www.theconclave.com. You may contact it via phone at 612-220-4487 or via email, email@example.com. Thank you.
