Community Advisory Board
88.5 WFDD Community Advisory Board meetings are open to the public and are held at the offices of 88.5 WFDD on the campus of Wake Forest University. Meetings are held quarterly, on the third Wednesday of the first month of each quarter.
2014 Community Advisory Board Meetings will be held at 4pm at 56 Wake Forest Road, Winston-Salem, NC, 27109, on the following dates: January 15th, April 16th, July 16th, and October 1st.
88.5 WFDD is licensed to Wake Forest University and therefore falls under the governance of the university's Board of Trustees. Information about the Wake Forest Board of Trustees is available on the Wake Forest University website.
88.5 WFDD's Community Advisory Board (CAB) primarily assists station staff in developing strong community partnerships; advises station management on strategic decisions related to programming and audience development; actively advocates for 88.5 WFDD in the community by being well-versed in the station's mission and vision, programming, audience trends, and fundraising efforts; provides suggestions for potential new donors; and participates in fundraising and stewardship efforts as needed.
This all-volunteer group, the composition of which is intended to be reasonably representative of the diversity of the communities served by 88.5 WFDD, meets quarterly to receive updates on station programming, audience, fundraising efforts, budgeting, and policies, and to provide feedback and recommendations for how the station can better serve its stakeholders. The quarterly CAB meetings are open to the public; however, closed sessions may be held to consider matters relating to individual employees, proprietary information, litigation and other matters requiring the confidential advice of counsel, commercial or financial information obtained from a person on a privileged or confidential basis, or the purchase of property or services whenever the premature exposure of such purchase would compromise the business interests of any such organization.
