About PMBA

PMBA's community is vital to building a prosperous future for public media. As an active organization of over 1,000 station managers, finance leaders, human resources professionals, and industry partners our members lead the business operations of the public media industry. An industry reaching more than 280 million people across the United States.

We advance the efficiency, effectiveness, and the economics of public media to empower, inform, and connect the community of PMBA professionals, ensuring the success and sustainability of public media for the national audience.

Our members share a common belief in three fundamental ideas. First, all stations should benefit from sound business practices and strategies. Second, stations are more successful when supported by informed and well-advised leaders. Third, a collaborative industry is best equipped to solve the challenges facing public media.

That's why PMBA members work together every day to share resources and best practices, provide strategic thought leadership, and partner throughout the public media industry. For more than thirty years, PMBA has played a vital role in the success of our member stations and the communities they serve.
