Proceeds from this fund will go to the following areas: upgrading equipment, external communications, training, community outreach, diaspora outreach and general capacity building.

February volunteer meeting

The second volunteer meeting of the year will take place tonight, most likely in the station. The reason for that vagueness is simply to do with the capacity of the CCR meeting room. So, there is a plan B – if there’s a large crowd in attendance, the meeting will move to The Dalton Inn.

Items on the agenda tonight will include a station update, a talk on conducting a studio interview and a presentation on social media and how you can use it to promote your show and grow its audience.

The meeting is scheduled for 7pm and all members are welcome.
