CMTO had a fantastic and productive time at the NEMBC National Conference 2022.
The conference began with youth and women’s networking sessions where our team was able to reunite with our friends from the sector, and make new ones. This was followed by a station visit hosted by 3ZZZ.
The main conference consisted of having the attendees sit in groups and talk about various topics that are relevant to the sector, from functioning in ‘a new normal’ to the experiences of ‘regional stations’.
There were also panel discussions, one more broadly about the sector and another about the role of news in the sector, where our CEO Giordana Caputo shared our vision for training Community Journalists. We also had the opportunity to showcase our NEMBC Multimedia Project, which was led by Pathways Manager Mikaela Ford and Trainers Shamsiya Hussainpoor and Anita Michalski
The conference finished with a Gala Dinner to celebrate the awesome diversity of ethnic broadcasting and to finish off a great conference.
CMTO would like to extend our thanks to NEMBC, Cultural Perspectives, 3ZZZ and everyone else who made the conference possible.
