Board Meeting Agenda, March 12th

Vision:  Redwood Community Radio envisions a community of listeners who, guided by the example of RCR programming, work together to create better, more just and sustainable world systems to ensure that all humans and other living species on earth move toward a higher quality of life and are able to survive challenges in the time ahead.

Mission Statement:  Redwood Community Radio will encourage a communication center of open airways (KMUD) for all voices to inform, educate, entertain and inspire the listening community through quality programming.

Ground Rules:  Speak respectfully to one another.  Focus on issues, not personalities.  Support the facilitator.  No interruption.  Make criticism constructive, specific, substantiated and, ideally, when the person(s) are present.  When required, a five-minute break shall be granted to attendees to encourage peaceful communication.  Speakers during Open Time will be assigned an amount of time not to exceed five minutes. Any further discussions during the meeting will be between Board Members unless a guest is acknowledged by the Facilitator or is scheduled as part of the agenda.

Thank you for volunteering at KMUD!

KMUD depends on volunteer energy.  To offer the community great programming, access to the airwaves and a diversity of voices, we need to pay the bills and keep our facilities maintained. From answering the phones during the fund drives to tidying up the kitchen and staffing benefit events, volunteer energy is the glue that holds it all together.  In this way, each volunteer, whether or not they are a programmer, is a citizen of the KMUD community. These are some elements of that citizenship:

  1. I agree to obtain permission from the station manager or Board of Directors before acting as a spokesperson or agent for KMUD and before using KMUD’s name in association with any public event or activity.
  • I will not register any social media usernames, Facebook pages, or other social media sites/services using “KMUD” or “Redwood Community Radio” without prior approval by the Station Manager.
  • If I post any personal opinions related to RCR, I will clearly state that I am a volunteer and I will make certain to state that the views expressed are purely my own and not necessarily those of RCR.
  • If I so choose, I may exchange twelve hours of volunteer work (pre-approved by the station manager) for a one-year membership in KMUD.
  • I will pay attention that my energy adds to rather than detracts from the work being done by other KMUD volunteers and/or KMUD staff.
  • Diatribes and harangues directed at a person or persons will not be tolerated and I will be removed from the volunteer roster if I engage in this behavior.
  • I agree that conflict is not desirable and will refrain from purposely stirring up conflict.
  • In case of conflict, I will follow the steps in the KMUD policy manual to resolve the conflict.  The first step is to talk directly to the person involved, and I agree to do that. 
  1. I agree to follow Coordinator/Staff instructions regarding Project times, locations, and “how-tos.”
