WEBINAR: Renewing Your Station’s Licence – The ACMA’s New B66 Form - 9 November 2021

Danny Chifley, 12th October 2021
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) have recently completed streamlining the community broadcasting licence renewal form – the B66 form – to simplify the process and make it easier for stations.

If your station is a permanently licensed community broadcaster, you are obligated to undergo a licence renewal every five years. 

Our webinar will look at the new form and process, what has changed and what you need to know to ensure a comprehensive and effective licence renewal in the future.

We will be joined by representatives from the ACMA for our webinar and we will look at:

  • The need and value of sector regulation, and opportunities for reform
  • Key changes in the new B66 form
  • Support and resources available
