PMBA Webinars are a FREE Member benefit.


Watercooler Conversations

Watercooler conversations are an opportunity for PMBA members to converse with each other about hot topics, successes, and shared challenges. The discussion will take place over the web-conferencing platform Zoom, but this is not a webinar. Instead of a presentation where all attendees are “in listen-only mode,” a facilitator will guide and manage a discussion between all attendees, pose questions to spark conversation, and ensure good participation. Participants are encouraged to bring their expertise, their questions, and their desire to participate and help their fellow public media colleagues solve problems. CPE credit is not available. Registration and PMBA membership is required.
