A non-profit professional organization formed in 1964, the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) is the only organization devoted to the advancement of all levels and types of broadcast engineering.
With more than 5,500 members and 114 local chapters, the SBE provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and the sharing of information to help you keep pace with our rapidly changing industry. The SBE amplifies the voices of broadcast engineers by validating your skills with professional certification, by offering educational opportunities to maintain and expand those skills and by speaking out on technical regulatory issues that affect how you work.
From the studio operator to the maintenance engineer and the chief engineer to the vice president of engineering, SBE members come from commercial and non-commercial radio and television stations and cable facilities. A growing segment of members are engaging the industry on their own as consultants and contractors. Field and sales engineers and engineers from recording studios, schools, production houses, CCTV, corporate audio-visual departments and other facilities are also members of the SBE.
SBE Chapter 33 represents the SBE and its members in Southwestern Ohio, which includes the Cincinnati and Dayton metropolitan areas. With engineers and technicians from nearly every TV and radio station in the region, as well as design, field, and sales engineers from a few of the country’s top-tier broadcast equipment manufacturers and consultancies, Chapter 33’s members are as diverse as the area these professionals serve.
If you work in a technical capacity at a broadcast or related facility in the area, or perhaps are a “free-lance” contract engineer or consultant that calls Southwestern Ohio “home,” we invite you to join now and take advantage of all that the SBE has to offer.
