Registration remains open for the National Federation of Community Broadcasters annual Community Radio Conference.
The event is March 26–29 in Atlanta.
Attendees from stations in major urban markets as well as small rural and Native American Reservation-based stations will participate in workshops with topics such as “Community Engagement: Building the Real and Virtual Community” and “‘Citizen’ Journalism: Building Community Through Participatory News.”
There will be a pre-conference intensive for recent applicants to the FCC for prospective new non-commercial educational radio stations: “If I Had a Hammer: A Guide to Building a Community Radio Station.”
“We believe that community radio stations must find ways to go beyond broadcasting, to break down the walls between station and community, between producer and listener,” says Ginny Berson, conference organizer and NFCB vice president and director of federation services.
