About the Club

Introduction

The Edmonton Broadcasters Club is a non-profit organization formed in 1998 to provide an environment for long-time broadcasters in the Edmonton area to keep in touch. In 2010, the Club expanded to include all broadcasters, no matter how long they have worked in the Broadcast Industry.

Mission Statement

  1. To provide the opportunity for social gatherings at which broadcasters may enjoy meeting with their colleagues;
  2. To assist broadcasters, including those now retired, in nurturing the friendships made with their former colleagues;
  3. To preserve and present the history of local broadcasting and broadcasters; and
  4. To provide the opportunity, when desired, to become informed concerning the state of broadcasting in the present day, and the forecasts for the future of radio and television in Canada.

Membership Requirements

Anyone with broadcast experience qualifies for membership. Membership is open to anyone who has worked (i.e. – paid as employee, contractor or owner) in the Broadcast Industry, even if none of that experience was in Edmonton.

The current membership fee is a one-time $5.00 charge. Membership cards are available at the club’s twice yearly Luncheons.

Who Can Attend Luncheons?

You don’t need to be a Club member to attend our Luncheons. If you qualify (see Membership Requirements above), you can attend, whether or not you are a Club member.

Anyone can come as the guest of a Club member, even those with no broadcasting experience. A Club member can bring as many guests as desired, and there is no requirement to arrive with the guest if it is more convenient to travel separately.

In summary: there is no requirement for Club membership if you wish to attend a Club Luncheon. And there is no limit on the number of Luncheons you attend before becoming a Club member, either as a Guest of a Club member.
