WEBINAR: Political Engagement – Part 1: Benefits of Political Engagement

Danny Chifley, 9th February 2016

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

Attend this webinar to find out how to build relationships between your station and elected representatives, including State and Federal Members of Parliament, Ministers, Local Councillors and Mayors. 

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

This is the first in a series of three webinars that draw from the CBAA's Political Engagement Toolkit. The kit is a resource designed for staff, volunteers and committee members at Australian community radio stations that highlights the need for, and benefits of political engagement, as well as providing easy to follow insights into how to do it successfully.

Who is this webinar for?

Station management and  other staff at your community broadcasting station involved in community engagement.

Presented by:

  • Joel Pringle, CBAA Policy and Research Adviser
  • Mark Riboldi, Sansicarus Creative, Campaigns and Communications
