Engineering Award Nomination Form

The Association of Public Radio Engineers presentations schedule is now set for the Public Radio Engineering Conference (PREC) to be held April 11th & 12th, 2024 with both in-person and virtual attendance options.

2024 PREC Schedule

PREC is an educational conference. We look for technical presentations that are neither marketing, nor promoting a specific product, company, or service.  The attendees are highly technical and attend the conference to find innovative ideas, solutions to problems, and educational enrichment to carry back to their stations. Our goal is to offer a variety of presentations based upon peer knowledge & experiences, manufacturer solutions, and educational papers that will benefit the public radio broadcast engineering community.

WHEN/WHERE: Las Vegas, NV  at the Tuscany Suites, April 11-12, 2024.

PREC 2024 is an IN-PERSON event with an option for virtual attendance. PREC’s virtual option has been well attended and we received lots of positive feedback from attendees. In person is better, but our virtual option is a close second!
