NWC/KOPN Board of Directors Election Coming Up

The 2020 election for the New Wave Corporation/KOPN Board of Directors will take place in January, with candidates submitting their materials in mid-November.  If you are a member of The New Wave Corporation/KOPN who is interested in the future of the station and in working to help make positive things happen, please consider running for one of the six positions coming open on the board.  (The six positions vary in length from 1 to 3 years.)

The Board meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Cope Ashlock Room at KOPN, 915 E. Broadway, Columbia, MO.  We try to finish by 9:00 pm (and usually succeed). Board members are expected to prepare for and attend these monthly meetings.

There will be reports to read (and occasionally to help prepare), financial reports to review, and some easy and some difficult decisions to make.  We try to carry on with good humor in those endeavors knowing that it is for a very good cause: the future of our very special community radio station.

Instructions for becoming an official candidate will be posted in early November.  Meanwhile, if you have questions about the Board as you contemplate your possible interest please contact Linda Day at [email protected] or leave a message at 573-874-1139 for a board member to call you.
