Committees
 
A lot of KGNU's work is done through committees. One way you can contribute to KGNU is by joining one of them.
 
General info
  • The board creates committees.
  • Committees report to the board. They may advise the board or the staff.
  • Unless otherwise noted, committee members include between one and three members of the board, between one and three staff members, and between two and six volunteers.
  • Committees perform four main functions:
    • Conduct preparatory work leading up to board decisions - such as developing policy options and planning recommendations for the consideration of the board.
    • Carry out tasks on behalf of the board in certain areas such as fundraising or community relations.
    • Work with the staff to implement certain operations and activities.
    • Serve as a training ground for future board members.
Meetings
  • Some committees meet regularly; others meet as needed.
  • Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are open to the public.
  • To be notified of meetings, contact us and ask to be added to the committee's e-mail list.
  • The meeting schedule is listed on the meeting calendar.
  • Meetings are usually held at the KGNU studios in Boulder.
