With election year fever spiking and the Texas March 5 primary election on the horizon, TAB has slated a members-only virtual briefing on the FCC’s political advertising rules for Jan. 16 which will also cover state regulations imposed by the Texas Legislature.

TAB Board Expands Training Programs

The TAB Board of Directors in December approved a 33 percent budget increase for TAB’s training services that, in part, allows TAB to increase by half the number of trainees for the extremely popular and very costly “Sales Rookie to Ready in 7 Weeks” program for first-time sellers. The in-demand classes are formulated quarterly.

TAB’s training partners, Derron Steenbergen with The Swagger Institute and Speed Marriott with P1 Learning, operate that program as well as “Ten-Minute Trainer”, the 24/7 online program with downloadable training modules and content from a broad range of experts ranging from Borrell Associates to Creative Ready.

Monthly “First Tuesday” LBS webinars routinely attract legions of sellers for expert insights into various advertising categories, strategies and challenges.

Additional programs planned include the return of TAB’s newsroom workshop to a college campus and a Capitol Reporter Bootcamp presentation, both in the fall.

All these programs are offered to members free of charge, except for the newsroom workshop which incurs a nominal fee to cover hard costs for outside facilities.
