HPPR Community Advisory Council

Sep 11, 2013

HPPR’s Community Advisory Council, as required by federal law, reviews the programming goals established by HPPR, the service provided by HPPR, and the significant policy decisions rendered by HPPR, and assesses whether the programming and other policies of the station are meeting the specialized educational and cultural needs of the communities served by HPPR.  The CAC deliberates independently of station management and HPPR’s Board of Directors, determining its own agenda and electing its own leadership. The CAC is an advisory body only, and is not authorized to exercise any control over HPPR’s daily management or operations. The CAC conveys its findings and recommendations based on public input to the Board of Directors. The CAC meets periodically throughout the year, mostly via conference calls. 

The next meeting will be a conference call on Wednesday, April 20th 6pm. All meetings are open to the public and if you are interested in attending this meeting or joining the CAC, please let Jessica Wikoff know by emailing her at jwikoff@hppr.org.
