Annual Board of Directors Election Information

Our annual KXCI Board of Directors election is complete. Our members elected Margie Puerta Edson, Howard Lowe, and Adam Weinstein. On Thursday, June 16th, the KXCI Board of Directors confirmed the election results and seated new members. Please join us in welcoming our new board members and sa. Each seat is for one 3-year term. Officially, anyone who is a member of KXCI in good standing for 30 days prior to their nomination can be elected to the Board, with the exception of paid employees of the Foundation for Creative Broadcasting. Generally speaking, the Board is composed of individuals who can put forth the time and effort to sustain and grow a viable Community Radio station. Helpful backgrounds include experience on other nonprofit boards, in fundraising and development, modern broadcast technology and digital platforms, accounting, human resources and the law. The primary requirement for being a successful Board member, however, is a love for Community Radio.
