Community Broadcasters Will Gather in Portland

Social networking, conversations about race and 'how to ask for money on the air' are among the topics

The National Federation of Community Broadcasters will meet for its 34th Annual Community Radio Conference in Portland, Ore., April 1–4.

Expect an array of speeches, sessions and even a little yoga.

Fundraising expert Kim Klein will be the keynote speaker, while also participating in a session — or “intensive,” as the NFCB calls them — concerning fundraising. Another, “Training the Trainers,” will focus on handling staff, especially on-air talent. Other sessions will examine the process of program production and how to start and build a community radio station.

Additionally, a number of workshops and roundtables will take place covering the gamut of station operation, funding, programming, technology/new media along with looking at legal issues, FCC regulations, the community radio movement and board of directors considerations.

Also, the Bader Award and the Volunteer of the Year Award will be presented.

Some events may have a separate admission fee.
