Central Vermont Community Radio (CVCR), the nonprofit organization that is the FCC licensee for the radio stations of WGDR Plainfield & WGDH Hardwick, is seeking volunteer leaders to join its board of directors.
Board members are actively involved in helping to connect and generate resources and provide leadership for the success of the station. The board is made up of up to seven members of our local community and terms are three years, with monthly two-hour meetings and additional work in between as needed.
The work of 2024 will include helping the board transition from being a founding board to an operational board, with a focus on fundraising, strategy, and planning for the next year and beyond for the station.
The board needs various new skill sets to help us further the station’s mission. This includes looking for candidates with experience in fundraising, non-profit boards, human resource, legal, and media expertise, as well as those connected to the local arts community, cultural organizations, and foundations.
We are eager to encourage members of a wide range of identities to apply to help ensure that CVCR’s leadership is reflective of our increasingly diverse community.
The current board is accepting applications until January 31. Those interested in applying for the board can complete an application here. It includes a handful of questions and will take about 15 minutes to complete.
All applications will be reviewed by the current board and prospective candidates will be contacted to schedule an interview with the full board via zoom.
For more information, contact the CVCR Board Chair Mark Michaelis via email at: [email protected].
