How to become a candidate – NWC/KOPN Board of Directors Election
The 2020 election for the New Wave Corporation/KOPN Board of Directors will take place in January. If you are a member of The New Wave Corporation/KOPN and are interested in the future of the station and in working to help make positive things happen, please consider running for one of the positions coming open on the board. The five positions vary in length from 1 to 3 years. There will be five open elected positions at the time of the election in January.
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.
How to Become a Candidate
To become a candidate for a position on the NWC Board of Directors, please prepare a brief statement (no more than 125 words) providing reasons for your interest and relevant background information about yourself. Please submit your statement and a photo to [email protected] by December 6.
Statements and photos will appear in online announcements of the election and will be mailed with ballots to current members of the NWC in December along with nested return envelopes so that all votes can be confidential. The Annual Members Meeting of the NWC will be held the afternoon of January 12, 2020, in the Friends Room at the Daniel Boone Regional Library. The final vote count will be completed and announced at the meeting.
