Conclave 39: Making A Case

From Drake Donovan, Founder-Drake Donovan Creative Services: "As a new board member of the Conclave, I've been working to get the word out about this year's Conclave Learning Conference. Some folks I've spoken with have been kind of down on it. They feel it's run its course and that it's just not the same as it used to be. Well, they're somewhat right. The Conclave isn't the same as it used to be. Radio, as a whole, isn't the same as it used to be. That is precisely why this organization still exists. The Conclave's mission is to further the education and advancement of our medium. And if you're passionate about radio, then you need to be in Minneapolis on November 14th and 15th. Besides, there's a benefit to getting outside of your radio world once in a while. It's a benefit that many don't really think about."
