ATTENTION STATIONS: EEO OUTREACH
This program may provide you with the basis to claim a "menu option" outreach initiatives credit under the FCC's EEO regulations. Specifically, one station representative in attendance must have hiring responsibilities at all of the stations represented. You should consult with your communications counsel or call MAB’s Washington Attorney David Oxenford to be sure. Please submit to the MAB Foundation copies of the station’s affidavits concerning airing Career Fair promotion. This information will be needed as we prepare the official EEO letter for each station participant.
The MABF will present all participants with an official letter that you may wish to place in your EEO records along with other relevant materials such as PSAs, affidavits, promotional letters, etc.
