RAB, BMI and MIW now accepting scholarship applications


The partnership of the RAB, BMI and the Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio Group (MIW) is now accepting scholarship applications for the ‘Rising Through the Ranks’ program.  The two-day training seminar dedicated to the support and advancement of women in Radio sales management will be held August 25-26 at the RAB Radio Training Academy in Dallas.

The 2009 Women in Radio Management & Leadership Training Seminar will continue to enhance women’s knowledge and skills in Radio sales management.  Designed for relatively new and up and coming sales managers, it will focus on critical sales management techniques and cover everything from time management to public speaking.

The winner of the RAB and the MIW Radio Group’s first annual Trailblazer Award, Erica Farber, will be a featured speaker at the seminar.  Farber is the former publisher of Radio & Records. 

BMI will provide 25 scholarships for this year’s program.  These scholarships cover the cost of the training course and help promote the advancement of female managers. 

Scholarship applications and registration are available at www.RAB.com and will be accepted now through July 17, 2009.  The training course is limited; applicants are encouraged to submit early to secure a spot.
