Helen Henry, 18th February 2016

Political engagement can help build a stronger connection with your station's community, create community radio advocates and open new doors for your station. 

The CBAA is running three webinars to assist community broadcasters with building a beneficial relationship between community radio stations and relevant elected representatives, including State and Federal Members of Parliament, Ministers, and local Councillors and Mayors. Attend to find out how you can get the most out of your interactions with politicians and how the CBAA's Political Engagement Toolkit can help you do it successfully. 

Part 1: The Benefits of Political Engagement - 23 February

Find out what political engagement is, why it matters, and how it can benefit your station. Register now.

Part 2: Promoting Community Radio - 22 March

When you are talking to politicians, you need to be prepared to promote community radio. This means becoming familiar with the sector, as well as how your station fits into both the sector and your community. Learn how to 'sell' your station to politicians, engage in the processes of democracy at the grass roots level and create social coherence through diversity. Register now

Part 3: Tools of Engagement - 26 April

A successful political engagement campaign will combine a variety of different strategies and tactics to ensure the best chance of building a relationship between you and your representatives that benefits both your station and the community. Learn what these might be and how you can use them at your station. Register now

All webinars begin at 6.30pm AEDT.
