Pop quiz: What does a music industry person do in the spring?

For those of you who are out of the loop, IBS is a not for profit educational association and foundation founded in 1940 by Dr. George Abraham, Ph.D. and David W. Borst. The focus of IBS is concentrated on providing insight to college and high school radio stations, TV, and webcasting throughout the country. This year marks the 65th year of the event, with next year adding another city to the itinerary.
