This article focuses on the 18th annual conference of NAMIC. The conference, which will be held at the Westin Hotel in New York starting September 19. will feature unprecedented CEO roundtable sessions that will include some of the top MSO and programming executives, including Time Warner Cable Inc., chairman and CEO Glenn Britt. NAMIC's first employment study in 1999 and subsequent follow up in 2002 revealed a concern among minority industry professionals about the lack of people of color in high-level positions. The conference will also feature a personal professional-development session each day to provide executives with information and ideas to help them climb the corporate ladder.
