J. Nephi Griffith (AARP & SMPTE Section Manager)

PROGRAM: NAB East Conference Recap / AARP Facility Tour

The AARP represents a growing number of Americans (including many SMPTE members) and has a strong media presence, including cable and satellite TV programs and online videos.  Their facility includes several studios, editing facilities, and much more.  Nephi will report on the NAB East show in NYC and attendees may then tour the facility.

Please register if you plan to attend so we can provide a list to AARP!  Walk-ins are still welcome - call Nephi at 202-445-9606 if you need assistance.


In an effort to better predict turnout are now using Eventbrite for monthly meetings.  If you expect to attend please register.  There is no obligation, and unregistered walk-ins are still welcome, but this will help us gauge room size and refreshment orders in advance.


AARP is at the corner of 6th and E Streets, NW in the Penn Quarter neighborhood.  The nearest METRO stations are Gallery Place and Navy Memorial.  Please go to the Building B entrance listed above!
