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.
