In this new era, there are going to be huge opportunities for radio professionals – in marketing, in sales, in programming, and in management – plus loads of exciting entrepreneurial opportunities as well.”

Conclave Executive Director Tom Kay explains, “Those registered for the Conclave will automatically be registered to attend the RAIN Summit Midwest.
