WEBINAR: Running Effective Board Meetings - 25 August

Danny Chifley, 26th June 2015

Running a board meeting at all can be difficult, let alone an effective one. Attend this webinar and find out how you can turn your board meetings from drab and inefficient to lively, engaging and productive opportunities to engage with people who care deeply about your station.

Serving on the board of a community radio station is a vital role. The board oversees the direction of the station, providing leadership, strategy and ensuring that the station is progressing towards its goals. 

Who is this webinar for?

Management committee members and board members who want to increase the effectiveness of their board meetings.

Presented by:

  • Tahlia Azaria, CBAA Marketing and Fundraising Officer. In addition to her role at the CBAA, Tahlia has served on the board of several not for profit organisations as well as engaged with boards in the capacity of community broadcasting station manager.
  • Simon Hancox, Grant Thornton - National Head of Not for Profit. Grant Thornton is one of the world's leading organisations of independent assurance, tax and advisory firms.
