For the past three years YoProWo [n: Yo-Pro-Woah], the in-person young professional development event, has been held prior to Annual Meeting. YoProWo events are geared towards helping young professionals network and grow their working knowledge of the public media system, and industry wide trends through engaging and collaborative discussions.This year along with the YoProWo event at the PBS Annual Meeting in San Diego,YoPro is expanding its presence to PBS TechCon in Las Vegas.
For nearly 40 years PBS TechCon has been a place where technology professionals can gather and meet to learn more about technological advances, best practices and share station success stories with their peers. With the added involvement of PBS Digital, the past three years PBS TechCon is quickly becoming the place for digitally-focused conversations.
We believe that young professionals are agents of change in their workplaces across the system, especially in the digital space. In addition to the expanded presence at TechCon, YoPro is excited to offer two scholarships to attend PBS TechCon!
