Over the last couple of months, the CMTO team have been attending Community Broadcasting Sector conferences all around the country. It has been fantastic to reconnect with the sector face-to-face while also having the opportunity to present multiple sessions. Read on to find out about our experiences at each conference.

SACBA

In early September the South Australian Community Broadcasters Association held their national conference in Adelaide. The conference was organised by our very own Projects Manager; Leadership and Enterprise, Charlotte Bedford. The team had a ball at the Bilby Awards and loved the chance to gain a closer connection to community radio stations across South Australia.

CBAA

The end of October found most of the CMTO team at sunny Cairns for the Community Broadcasting Association Of Australia’s annual conference. It was great to see people from all over the community broadcasting sector come together after a couple of years away. 

CMTO delivered multiple sessions and panels throughout the conference speaking about many topics including; station policies, codes of practice, empowering people with disability, community radio newsrooms and social media.
