Kootenay Co-op Radio Board Committees
Policies act as a guide to we can deal with various issues consistently, thoughtfully, and fairly. There is always a need to develop new policies and update old ones. We have policies on :
Access to Station
Complaints and Appeals
Leaves of Absence
Preparing Policies and Procedures
Public Service Announcements
This committee is responsible for developing the annual budget and monitoring income and expenses throughout the year. The details of this are all handled by the Administrative Manager, but it is the board, through the Finance Committee, that is ultimately responsible for the financial viability of the station.
The board is the employer of KCR staff, and the Personnel Committee carries this out. It is responsible for decisions about staffing, including hiring, supervising, and evaluating the two managers.
Because the board is responsible for making sure the station has the money required to function, this committee takes the lead in station fundraising efforts outside of our two main sources of revenue, sponsorships and memberships.
Community Connections Committee
The outreach committee is responsible for maintaining the station's profile in the community, and for making sure the station is interacting with the broadest possible cross-section of the community.
The Programming Committee works with the Operations Manager to oversee programming matters at the station, in terms of general direction and priorities. This includes selection and monitoring of new programs.
The renovation and repair of the building is never quite done, and this committee looks after this and the regular maintenance of the building including janitor work.
This committee works with the Operations Manager to oversee all computer and broadcasting technology at the station.
