CCR 2017 AGM

The AGM of Claremorris Community Radio will be held in The D’Alton Inn, Claremorris, on Thursday 9th November 2017 at 8pm and you are invited to attend.

Any current member (of more than six months), is eligible to nominate themself or a fellow member for election to Claremorris Community Radio’s Board of Directors.  The Board of Claremorris Community Radio consists of seven members and the elections to the board will take place at the AGM.

Board members should have an interest in the radio and the furtherance of our community-driven agenda. It is also desirable that they have skills which would benefit the board. The role of the board is to ensure that the station is meeting the needs of the community it serves and that it is an open and inclusive organisation.

Nomination forms are available from the station. Should you wish to nominate yourself or a fellow volunteer to sit on the Board of Directors of Claremorris Community Radio, please submit a completed form to the manager at the station not later than 5pm on Tuesday 7th November 2017.

That’s also the deadline for the submission of motions for the AGM.

Upcoming courses

CCR are hosting several courses over the next two months.

We will be delivering a 10-week QQI (FETAC) Level 4 training programme in Radio Production and Presentation Skills.

Starting the last week in October, training will take place on Wednesdays (10am to 3pm). Admission is €250 p/p. However, if you are currently unemployed and in receipt of a social welfare payment, we can assist you in applying for a grant to cover the full registration cost of the course.

The second course will be on the topic of fundraising and will be hosted by Cleo De Vito. It will take place on a Saturday (either Nov. 18th or 25th, tbc) for circa 6 hours, from 10am to 4pm. This course is free, open to all members, and no prior experience is necessary.

If you’re interested in either course, please get in touch with the office on 094 9373737 or email admin@ccr946.ie.
