The Foundation for Creative Broadcasting, Inc. dba KXCI Governing Board of Directors 2017 Election Information

Each year, KXCI members elect three of their fellow members to seats on the KXCI Board of Directors. 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 effort to sustain and grow a viable Community Radio station. Helpful backgrounds include experience on other nonprofit boards, in fundraising and development, technology, broadcast, accounting, human resources and the law. The primary requirement for being a successful Board member, however, is a love for Community Radio.
