Beyond the Microphone - Volunteering in Community Radio

WEBINAR: Beyond the Microphone - Volunteering in Community Radio

Joshua Cole, 8th May 2024

Volunteers are the lifeblood of community radio. From our on air hosts to the back office and everything in between without volunteers community radio could not thrive.

But how do you attract, support and develop your volunteers in this changing volunteering landscape?

In this presentation, Clint Bertenshaw, Director: Sector Development and Engagement, from the Centre for Volunteering will provide you with insights and pragmatic approaches to:

  1. Embracing volunteer motivations and addressing their barriers
  2. Rethinking volunteering roles and programs for flexibility and sustainability
  3. Revising volunteer recruitment and engagement strategies to attract a greater pool of volunteers

In support of the concepts discussed in the presentation, participants will learn of the suite of free tools and resources available through The Centre for Volunteering to support Volunteer Leaders, Station Managers and their volunteer programs.


Date: 3-4PM AEST, Tuesday, 11 June 2024
