About the Course

This training course is designed to help provide a baseline understanding for all Board (and staff) members about the duties of the Board of Directors at a Campus/Community Radio Station. It is designed so that each month, the board member at a station will log in, complete the 5-15 minute training course and then will be prepared for a board of directors meeting at their local station. You can work ahead, as necessary.
