The Powell River Community Radio Society (PRCRS) on Thurs. Nov 26, 2015 held its Annual General Meeting. Having met quorum, members listened to many updates to the plan to increase CJMP’s broadcast range, and were presented with the financials. With 9 people interested in either continuing on the Board or joining it, there was a vote to increase the number of directors to 9 people.
Many thanks to the out-going directors for their tireless work! Stepping down from the Board were Don Mitchinson, Maggie Mondey, and DJ Triple Dub.
Volunteer of the Year was Don Mitchinson and Programmer of the Year Giovanni (Rabideye) of 1000 Tiny Magnets.
On November 26 at 7 p.m., the Powell River Community Radio Society will hold its 2015 Annual General Meeting. The location is the Community Resource Centre, 4752 Joyce Avenue. Members are eligible to vote and elect the Board of Directors for the 2016 year (memberships available at the door).
Ever thought about running? We are open to all interested community members, but especially need a volunteer with knowledge of accounting as that is often a difficult position to fill. We want your fresh ideas, so if you’ve ever thought of being on the Board of Directors, this is your chance!
We are in a period of growth at the station, moving ever closer to expanding our tower signal, buoyed by several recent large grants.
A first-ever CJMP News Department is seeking interested volunteers to collaborate and build a weekly news show. No experience required. Workshops begin in December on news gathering and reporting, and a second workshop will be held in January on using the technical equipment, including the sound board, recorders and editing audio.
If you can make it, please bring your questions to the meeting. We would love to see you.
