Statement from the President:
It is my honour and privilege to have been working with this organization as a Board Member and Treasurer, and I feel excited and committed to taking on the new role as President. I look forward to helping the organization carefully strengthen and streamline itself. I firmly believe that together – combining the collective experience, knowledge and determination of campus & community stations across the country with the central stewardship and services of the NCRA – we all have a bright and long-lasting future in broadcasting, community service, and telling great and important stories. -MK
The NCRA/ANREC Board looks to announce a June date for the 2023 AGM, a shorter year putting the organization back into its typical 12-month schedule. The AGM will NOT be part of the NCRC in Calgary, but online after the conference.
The NCRA/ANREC will be announcing a by-election, as per our Bylaws to fill 4 positions: We are specifically looking for non-males (at least one from North, Prairies or Quebec) and an indigenous representative to join the board for the next two years (which would most likely be closer to 20 months). Watch for an email.
