A couple of months ago lots of voices were heard from in reaction to the hiring process for a new WFHB General Station Manager. This demonstration of concern seemed like a positive sign that many folks love the station and care very much about its continuation as a democratically run media force in the Bloomington community and surrounding area. Many of those heard from had great suggestions as well as pragmatic and philosophical goals for station expansion and now is the perfect time for those positive thinkers and supporters to transfer their ideas and thoughts into action by serving on the WFHB Board of Directors.
There are 3 board positions expiring in June and new board members will be elected at the upcoming annual meeting to be held 7 June at 12:15 pm location TBA. The nominating committee is submitting 4 nominations but anyone who has put in 30 hours of volunteer time during this past year (at least 4 hours in 3 different months) can petition to be a board member. Simply collect 10 signatures of support for yourself or for someone you wish to nominate and submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6 May 2014. Board candidate bios will be posted on the WFHB website.
This is a great opportunity to be a part of WFHB not only as a volunteer but as someone who can contribute to the future planning and growth of a station that is just simply getting better every day. Hope to see YOU among the list of potential candidates!
