Community Advisory Board

The KAFM Community Advisory Board (CAB) is comprised of listeners of the station and members of the Grand Valley Community, that participate in non-profits, the business sector, and more.
 
  • The Community Advisory Board is a group of listeners who are interested in providing feedback and suggestions concerning the programming and overall sound of the radio station.
  • The Community Advisory Board does not have operational or programming control over the station.
  • The current membership is nine.  Each member commits for a year (six meetings) and can self-renew each year.
  • Members are recruited from the community and should not be on-air programmers.
  • The meetings are moderated by a staff member (currently Coach or Katie).  The moderator will compile an agenda which will drive discussion for each meeting.
  • Meetings are scheduled for every other month.  Currently meetings are scheduled for 5:30-7:00pm on the third Tuesday of odd numbered months (subject to change).
  • Meetings will end promptly by 7:00pm to respect members' schedules.  Any leftover agenda items will carry over to the next meeting.
  • The minutes of each meeting are submitted to the Executive Director and the President of the Board of Directors, and posted below.

Members of the 2021 Community Advisory Board are:

Betty Ries
Janice Burtis
Karen Boita
Kim Smith
Kyle Kercheval 
Marc Summers
Mariah Reynolds
Martha Graf
Matt Jennings
Zac Grant


The CAB meets every 3rd Tuesday of odd-numbered months to discuss the sound of the station, as well as the needs of the listener in an unbiased way (no staff member or programmer is on the CAB).
