Chapter 76, Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), generally meets on the 2nd Wednesday after the first Monday of each month. The date rarely varies from this formula. This keeps the meeting towards the middle of every month.

The usual meeting location is the Sizzler Restaurant, 1010 Postal Way, Springfield, OR 97401, 541-726-9933  and the time is 11:30 a.m. You do not need to be a member of the SBE to attend these meetings, nor do you have to be a member of the local broadcast community. As long as the topic of the meeting is of interest to you, you’re invited. If you see that a given month is “Reserved” for an exhibitor, it means simply that. Additional details of meetings are posted here as soon as they’re available.
