Holly Friedlander Liddicoat, 18th August 2017
Two new forums providing women and young people the chance to discuss the issues facing them in community broadcasting have been added to the alreading bursting 2017 CBAA Conference program.

These new additions will be joing an all-star lineup of workshops, forums and speakers. The CBAA Conference is the perfect place to learn about, engage with and discuss the community broadcasting sector with experts, sector leaders, broadcasters and your peers. It will give you the latest information across all areas of community broadcasting as well as provide you with the opportunity to network within the industry.

The new sessions will provide a much needed platform for youth and women to discuss issues affecting them within the sector and ideas to combat them.

Youth Forum

This forum welcomes conference delegates under 26 years of age, to meet and discuss the role that young people play in community broadcasting, and any issues young people are facing at a station or sector-wide level. Where relevant, ideas discussed in this forum will be presented to the CBAA Board. Lunch will be provided.

Presented by the CBAA Board's Youth Representative, Pip Younes.
