Once they have all completed training by Georgie , our new additions will be ready to review grant applications.
We asked some of our new recruits what motivated them to get involved. Here’s what they said…
“Community radio has had a huge impact on my life, so I’m honored to be able to give something back by providing opportunities for volunteers and stations to achieve their goals and projects.”
“I’m looking forward to learning about the latest broadcasting equipment and what other stations are using, so that I can help my own station and help other community stations that need it.”
“I want to give something back to a sector that has provided me with so many opportunities. Funding decisions are not just a tick box exercise, they give heart to those on the frontline of community media that their hopes and dreams are heard.”
“I think that being a CBF assessor will enhance my own understanding of the broadcasting landscape.”
“I’m most looking forward to seeing the ideas and possibilities, that careful funding can provide, come to fruition”.
“I want to be more involved by actively assisting content makers to shape and create their stories. Community broadcasting has given me so much, it would be amazing to give back to that community in a meaningful way.”
“Becoming a CBF assessor will allow me to learn more about what makes an effective application.”
“I want to give more back to a sector that has supported and nourished me in so many ways. I’m looking forward to reading innovative and exciting proposals from community media organisations!”
