The CBAA is pleased to share its 2019/2020 annual review, detailing the proactive and responsive initiatives undertaken to champion and support the community radio sector in a year like no other.

“Without a doubt this year will go down as one of the most challenging times ever for our communities. Yet, it has showcased the vital work community radio does during a crisis – or three. Community radio stations continue connecting people throughout drought, bushfires, and a pandemic,” says CBAA Chief Executive Officer Jon Bisset.

Of the successful achievements of the past twelve months, highlights include:

In addition to those listed above, the CBAA provided crucial support to assist the sector in staying connected and informed through national crises, as well as represent stations in showcasing their value to key government bodies.

Within the Annual Review, the CBAA also provides case studies to demonstrate how it has achieved its strategic goals and priorities for 2019/2020, along with an evaluation of its organisational performance.
