2012 Chéticamp

From October 26-28, 2012, CKJM-FM in Chéticamp, Nova Scotia, hosted a bilingual Atlantic Regional Campus and Community Radio Conference.

This conference was part of the Sounds Co-operative Project — a collaboration between Kootenay Co-op Radio (CJLY-FM) and the NCRA that celebrated 2012 as the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives by promoting co-ops through community radio, encouraging radio stations to be more co-operative, and to help emerging stations to set themselves up as co-ops. The work was funded by Co-operative Development Initiative.

The conference included workshops on fundraising and radio bingo, recording local musicians, and working with rural co-operatives.
