More on meetings going radio-active

My colleague Sue Hatch has an infinitely better writeup than I wrote earlier of the soon-to-be-launched meetings-only Internet radio station. See it in this week's MeetingsNet Extra, our e-newsletter. Also, this morning I heard that “Association Nation,” a radio program for and about associations, just introduced a new segment devoted to the meetings industry.

If you're in the Washington, D.C., metro area, you can listen in on WMET-AM 1160 Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. If you're not, they archive the programs at www.associationnation.com. From the press release:

The meetings segment is entitled, “Your Meeting Matters,” and is hosted by Katherine Markham, CHME, co-founder of ConventionPlanit.com, a popular meetings industry Web portal.

The edition of Association Nation was completely devoted to the meetings industry and featured an in-depth interview with Gregg H. Talley, chairman of the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) and president of Talley Management Group.His interview was followed by a panel discussion on trends in the meetings industry that included Talley; Windy Christner, Director of Meetings & Expositions for the American Pharmacists Association; and Carroll Armstrong, a former CVB executive who is now Director of New Business Development for ConventionPlanit.com.

Looks like people think audio is the new way to go. I hope to have a little time to check this out later today, but unless I'm riding around in my car, I really don't like to sit and listen to talk radio. But it's cool that something aimed at associations--which aren't particularly well-known for getting out ahead of the curve--are trying new ways to reach their members.
