WEBINAR: Political Engagement – Part 2: Promoting Community Radio

Danny Chifley, 16th 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. 

When you are talking to your politicians, you need to be prepared to promote community radio. This means becoming familiar with the sector, and how your station fits into the sector and your community.

Attend this webinar to learn how to 'sell' your station to politicians, engage in the processes of democracy at the grass roots’ level and create social coherence through diversity.

This is the second 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
