"There are few forums in North America where broadcasters can come together and share their issues, best practices and to articulate their recommendations on a range of technical, operational and legal challenges that are all part of the changing media landscape. NABA uniquely provides this service and opportunity for broadcasters from Mexico, the US, and Canada; taking their common voice to international forums and organizations where effective representation is made on questions of spectrum, signal protection, anti-piracy, technical standards, news gathering, program exchange and the protection of broadcast crews in the field. NABA thinks and acts globally while rooted in the domestic communities of our members."
Director General, NABA
