In 2016, we conducted a self-imposed review of the CBF structure and governance systems and processes to determine what organisational structure, governance arrangements and funding model we should adopt to best meet the needs of the community broadcasting sector.
At the time, we made a commitment to undertake a future independent assessment of the restructure to understand whether the new structures and processes were still meeting the needs of our very diverse community media sector.
Following a public request for proposal process late last year, we are delighted to announce that a consortium comprising Tony Grybowski & Associates and Think Insight & Advice will be conducting the review .
In the coming months they will be consulting widely with stations and sector organisations, as well as the CBF’s Board, committees and team to gather insights that will inform their recommendations for refinements to the structure and any improvements that could be made.
The areas they will be looking at in the review are :
- peer review of grants
- strategic and longer-term granting
- governance process and practice
- global budgeting of funds
- CBF’s relationship with the sector
- cultural inclusivity and safety.
The consortium will present their findings to the CBF Board in September 2022.
