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 empowers committees. There are five standing committees, as defined in Article VII of the bylaws, and ad-hoc committees created as needed.
  • 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.
  • The meeting schedule and locations are listed on the meeting calendar.
  • PLEASE NOTE: During the coronavirus pandemic and the Safer at Home restrictions, meetings will be held online via Zoom videoconferencingPlease contact the committee chairs via the links below for information on how to join the meetings.
