We help nonprofits and government agencies deliver their messages effectively and affordably.

nasba-vermont

The Non Commercial Sustaining Announcement/Public Education Program provides non-profit organizations and government agencies with a unique opportunity to deliver important educational messages to citizens across a state, region or the country.

Each month, thousands of NCSA/PEP campaign messages are aired on radio and TV stations, educating viewers and listeners and providing sponsoring organizations with significant returns on their investment.

Qualified campaigns can be aired in individual states, or on a regional or nationwide basis. NCSA/PEP programs are operated by every state broadcasters association in the country and the National Alliance of State Broadcasters Associations (NASBA) can help coordinate multi-state or national campaigns. To learn more, contact VAB Executive Director Jim Condon at (802) 655-5764 or by email at vab@vab.org.

1. Multiply Your Media Budget

Every NCSA/PEP program multiplies your budget by at least four times—and it’s often much more.

2. More Clout with Stations

Radio and TV stations are deluged with requests for PSAs. NCSA/PEP programs make sure your message gets airtime, with records of exact airtimes and frequency of announcements. Regular old PSA’s just don’t do that!

 

3. Documentable Results

Airtime reports are generated each quarter, showing the value of the airtime given to your message and where it aired in the state.

 

4. Statewide Distribution

Affiliation with your state broadcasters association means your message is distributed to radio and TV stations in the entire state of Vermont.

 

5. Various Airtimes

NCSA/PEP spots normally run 7 days a weeks across all dayparts.

6. Finite Time Period

NCSA/PEP campaigns have a definite beginning and end date.

 
 
 
  • “Our advertising agency has a twelve-year NCSA/PEP relationship with all of the state broadcasters associations. Through the NCSA/PEP program, we obtain year-round TV and radio exposure for our federal government clients. Broadcast advertising would be very limited without those partnerships.”

    Chris LaughlinPresident, LM&O Advertising

  • “We have found the program is the most affordable way to reach a broad audience with life-saving information. Our Board and members are very impressed with the reach and airtime return on our investment in this program.”
