Join the Board of Directors


The NCRA/ANREC is supported by a board of directors, as per its non-profit bylaws. The association operates with 10 board of directors, rotating approximately half the board members every year (typically those elected to the board at the AGM are on for 2 years)

In order to join the board, you will need to be approved at the NCRA/ANREC AGM or through a special election, if there is a vacancy.  You would submit an application form, made available by the NCRA/ANREC Board of Directors (and also through staff), who will review the form and make recommendations to the membership about your participation on the board.  You must have approval from your station to run as their representative, and be nominated by a second station. Please submit this information in alignment with the request of the NCRA/ANREC Board of Directors based on the timing of the election. Typically this is a few weeks before the AGM or special election.

This document outlines the basic work that a Board of Directors within the NCRA/ANREC would do during its term.

2018 NCRA/ANREC Board of Directors

Diverse representation

NCRA/ANREC members serve an audience recognized as diverse in ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, age, and physical and mental ability, and the NCRA/ANREC board of directors must reflect this diversity.  The NCRA/ANREC has implemented a Leadership Representation Policy – approved in 2022 to build on this work.

The NCRA/ANREC strongly encourages applications from women, non-binary individuals, BIPOC, and people with disabilities. We also recognize the underrepresentation of community stations at a board level. The current board disproportionally represents the campus sector. 

The NCRA/ANREC recognizes its historic issues with discrimination and tokenism and is actively looking to improve itself as an organization and as a reflection of the diverse nature of c/c radio. Following our ‘They Don’t Come To Us’ report about systemic racism in our sector, we’ve committed to addressing this and are actively working on solutions.  Diversity at a governance level is vital to the development of a healthier and more representative association. 

No station can have more than one representative on the NCRA/ANREC Board, with the exception of the Indigenous seat. Therefore, any NCRA member station not represented already is encouraged to put forward a candidate in this by-election.
