What We Do

The Board of Directors at CFRU drives strategic and organizational planning, determines long term goals, provides general oversight for all radio station activities, and participates in a variety of CFRU Committees. 

All board members are expected to participate on at least one committee (CFRU maintains policy, finance, tech, programming, health & Safety, management, employment equity, and hiring committees, among others) while also attending and participating at our monthly board meeting.  

How To Join

You can join the board by being nominated (or by self-nominating) for election at or in advance of the Annual General Meeting. Typically, CFRU's Annual General Meeting happens in early November. All CFRU members (volunteers, students, and dues-paying community members) are entitled to a vote at our AGM. Sometimes board positions open up mid-year however - in that case, the board may appoint board members to fill a vacancy. If you are interested in joining the board at any point of the year, email nominations@cfru.ca or cfru.admin@gmail.com for more information. A commitment of 5-10 hours per month is expected from our board members. (A "Nominations Booklet" is available also by emailing the above addresses for more detail on the expectations of each board member)
