A Rising Tide…

Welcome to the 2018 NextGen Public Media Co-op Meeting.

It is said that a rising tide lifts all boats. Together, the Co-op can help turn the tide of membership fundraising in public media and once again lead the way toward success and innovation.

The 2018 Public Media Co-op Meeting will be held October 23-25 at the Marriott Stanton South Beach Hotel in Miami Beach, Fla. Registration for the meeting and hotel booking is now open. We hope to see you there!

The Co-op will begin on Tuesday, October 23 with a half-day session followed that night by a welcome reception on the patio overlooking the pool and the Atlantic Ocean.

This year we will wrap up on Thursday, October 25 with our Annual Co-op dinner, which will be held at the Stanton Marriott on the upper patio with views of the ocean, a South Beach BBQ, and the soothing sounds of a steel drum band.

In between, we’ll have another meeting packed with popular sessions on tests and trends, new creative, prospect building, audience segmentation, channel integration, and issues facing public media fundraisers every day.
