Volunteers power the community broadcasting sector, with over 22,000 individuals across the country keeping community radio vital and vibrant. But this is not a finite resource and to ensure that the sector stays strong and reflective of our communities, we need to keep motivated people coming through the door and active in roles that are both suitable and engaging.
Our webinar aims to assist board and management of stations in both attracting new volunteers and refining the roles and responsibilities of existing volunteers. In this session, we will look at:
- Getting people through the door
- Eliminating barriers to entry
- Identifying the strengths of your volunteers
- The role of the board or committee of management as volunteers
