The Cable TV Pioneers is a unique group of individuals, not companies, who celebrate the lives and accomplishments of their peers. As you know, membership is based on nominations by current Pioneers who are not related to, nor currently work with, their nominees. Likewise, attending Pioneer banquets is an individual choice made by each Pioneer.

Every event the Pioneers conducts takes into account the health and safety of all attendees. This year, in addition to the Atlanta Ritz-Carlton’s guaranteeing their venue and servers will be following required mandates, attendance will be limited for better social distancing. Masks will be available, to adhere to current City of Atlanta guidance and hand sanitizers, courtesy of sponsor dB Communications, will also be available. The Pioneers have gone the extra mile by having legal counsel review our event protocols to ensure they are in line with the city of Atlanta and CDC mandates and recommends attendees be aware of the following waver:
