MEMBERSHIP– Paid up and Proud
Your management committee has elected to keep membership at the low rate of $55 per annum for 2022/2023… still a smidgeon more than just a $1 a week.
Being a member of your community radio show your support for this vital link with the local community. It gives you the opportunity to have a say in the direction of community radio for your city, allows you to vote at special meetings, gives you the opportunity to stand for the committee to run your station and if you choose, you can volunteer in many of the roles at the station. Training is provided.
Your small contribution as a member/volunteer covers you in part for that training, volunteer and other insurance, pays the licences for broadcasting, puts the coffee and tea in the kitchen, helps pay the power bills and general upkeep. As usual, as a member it doesn’t mean you have to volunteer, but feel free to pop in and say hi, and thank the members that do.
