We have two types of membership. First, there's full membership.
To qualify for full membership in the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia, you must have at least 10 years of service in broadcasting, communications or related fields. None of these years is required to be in the Philadelphia market.
To qualify for associate membership in the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia, you are required to have at least one year (and less than ten years) experience in broadcasting, communications or related fields. None of this time is required to be in the Philadelphia market.
In order to keep costs down, all memberships expire yearly on June 30th. Membership year is July through June. However, people who join in mid-year would never be dropped until they have received a full year. So you never have to worry about when to join. Join anytime!
Our members are innovators in their field. Are you an innovator? There's always new areas of broadcasting to pioneer or innovate. Internet broadcasting, station websites and transmission of broadcast material via broadband and videophone are just a few of the arenas for today's pioneers and innovators.
