The Claremorris Community Radio AGM will be held at the radio station in the Town Hall, Claremorris on Wednesday 31st July 2013, starting at 7.30pm. Elections to the board will take place at the AGM.
To ensure that the station truly reflects the community, half of the station’s Board of Directors (which is made up of up to 14 people) must represent clubs and organizations in our area and half must represent volunteers. There are approximately five Board meetings throughout the year, lasting about an hour and a half each and the demands are not great. The role of the board is to ensure that the station is meeting the needs of the community it serves.
In participating in the governance of the station, you can have a real input into the future direction of the organization and, as a community-run, not-for-profit group, we strongly feel that volunteer participation in the governance of the station is hugely important.
In order to be considered for a position on the Claremorris Community Radio board of Directors, or to be able to vote for volunteer representatives to be co-opted onto the Board, volunteers must be full members of Claremorris Community Radio. Being a full member means that you have regularly contributed to station activities over the past year and that you have paid your membership fee for 2013 or are exempt.
Nomination forms are available from the station or can be emailed to you on request. If you would like to nominate yourself or a fellow volunteer to sit on Claremorris Community Radio’s Board of Directors, the form must be returned to the station no later that 4pm on Monday 29th July 2013.
If you have questions or if you need any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact Kevin Griffiths at the station on 094 9373737 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
