BBB National Programs Announces 85 Distinguished Members of 2021 National Advertising Review Board Panel
703.247.9330 / email@example.com
McLean, VA – January 5, 2021 – BBB National Programs today announced the 2021 Panel Pool Members for its 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 of its decisions.
Founded in 1971, the National Advertising Review Board operates in its appellate capacity for BBB National Programs’ National Advertising Division and Children’s Advertising Review Unit. These programs are three of more than a dozen self-regulatory and dispute regulation programs of the independent non-profit organization, BBB National Programs.
For 2021, the National Advertising Review Board’s 50th anniversary year, panel pool members include 85 distinguished leaders from three different categories:
- National Advertisers
- Advertising Agencies
- Public Members (academics and other members of the public sector)
Each National Advertising Review Board appellate panel 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 primarily made by the Association of National Advertisers, American Association of Advertising Agencies, American Advertising Federation, 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 12 new members join 73 individuals returning to their distinguished roles.
The National Advertising Review Board’s peer review process of case decisions helps to promote the voluntary compliance that is a pillar of industry self-regulation. This fair and impartial appellate body examines the record of appealed proceedings and makes determinations as to the truth and accuracy of the advertising claims at issue.
In more than 90% of case decisions, companies voluntarily comply with the recommendations made by the National Advertising Division, Children’s Advertising Review Unit, and the National Advertising Review Board. In cases of lack of good-faith efforts to modify or discontinue advertising as a result of a decision, cases are referred to the appropriate regulatory agency.
“The National Advertising Review Board’s reputation for supporting fair competition is well-known in the advertising industry,” said Eric D. Reicin, President and CEO, BBB National Programs. “Our 2021 panel pool members, notably selected to serve during BBB National Programs’ National Advertising Review Board’s historic 50th year, bring incredible diversity and depth of experience to their role of helping to resolve disputes and enhance consumer trust.”
“I am honored to welcome these distinguished professionals to the highly respected National Advertising Review Board,” said Kenneth A. Plevan, NARB Chair. “I am proud of the work this group accomplishes to ensure the success of advertising industry self-regulation and to help promote an advertising environment where trust exists between businesses and consumers.”
Following is the list of BBB National Programs’ National Advertising Review Board panel pool members for 2021. Of these 85, 12 are new and 32 have been re-appointed for an additional term of service.
