BBB National Programs Announces 98 Distinguished Panel Pool Members for 2024 National Advertising Review Board

McLean, VA – January 9, 2024 – BBB National Programs today announced the 98 panel pool members of the 2024 National Advertising Review Board, the appellate body for the U.S. advertising industry’s system of self-regulation. 

The National Advertising Review Board panel pool members, selected for their stature and experience in their fields, provide independent peer review to ensure truthfulness and accuracy in national advertising and help promote voluntary compliance with self-regulatory decisions. 

Founded in 1971, the National Advertising Review Board provides appellate review of BBB National Programs’ National Advertising Division and Children’s Advertising Review Unit decisions. In more than 90% of case decisions, companies voluntarily comply with any advertising recommendations made. In situations where an advertiser fails to make good-faith efforts to modify or discontinue advertising as recommended, cases are referred to the appropriate regulatory agency. 

These advertising programs are three of more than a dozen self-regulatory, accountability, and dispute-resolution programs of the independent non-profit organization, BBB National Programs.

For 2024, panel pool members include 98 distinguished leaders from three different categories:

  • National Advertisers
  • Advertising Agencies
  • Public Members (academics and other members of the public sector)

 

A National Advertising Review Board appellate panel generally consists of five members from the pool, with three national advertising representatives, one agency representative, and one public sector representative on each panel.

Nominations for National Advertising Review Board panel pool members are made by the Association of National Advertisers (ANA), American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A’s), American Advertising Federation (AAF), Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), and BBB National Programs. The initial term is two years, and each member is eligible to be re-appointed for two additional two-year terms. This year 26 new members join 72 individuals returning to their distinguished roles.

“I extend a warm welcome to both our returning and new distinguished panel pool members as they embark on their 2024 mission to resolve advertising disputes truthfully and bolster consumer confidence," said Eric D. Reicin, President and CEO, BBB National Programs.

Following is the list of BBB National Programs’ National Advertising Review Board panel pool members for 2024.
