Get Community Radio Broadcasting Info and Advice


The CBAA is the go-to source for up to date information and advice and services tailored to your station’s needs.

Get advice on all community broadcasting matters

Just give us a call - 02 9310 2999 - or send an email. Our experienced staff are available to provide advice tailored to individual CBAA members on all community broadcasting matters, including but not limited to broadcast law, copyright, training, station management, human resources, technical suppliers, programming, fundraising, tax, sponsorship and handling complaints. 

Are you based in or travelling to Sydney? We'd love to hear from you! Get in touch and let us know when you'll be in town and we can arrange a meeting. This could include a Coffee & Codes session for your station, giving a run down on and answering your questions about the Codes of Practice.

Access independent legal and dispute resolution services 

Sometimes, we also recommend bringing on an external expert to assist stations with legal and dispute resolution matters and are able to offer our:

Duty Solicitor Program

The CBAA partners with HWL Ebsworth to provide CBAA member stations with access to a solicitor for a free 20 minute telephone consultation, providing easy access to legal advice from solicitors with expertise in broadcasting and media law.

Dispute Resolution Initiative

The CBAA partners with the Resolution Institute to provide pro-bono mediation services to CBAA members in the case of an internal dispute.

Use online learning resources

The CBAA's Resource Library and Webinar program are great resources to learn about topics of interest to people in a variety of roles at community radio stations.

HR Support

Stations can access HR support by way of forms, policies, contracts and agreements for use in their stations. This includes employment contracts, volunteer engagement contracts, equal employment policies, social media policies, workplace health and safety (WHS) policies.
