Southern Oregon PBS's Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board generally meets twice a year. Meetings are open to the public. For more information about upcoming dates and to confirm attending one of our meetings, please call Brad Fay, Director of Content, at 541.779.0808 ext. 224.

What is the Community Advisory Board?

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) reviews the programming goals established by the station, the programming services, and any significant programming policies. This committee then advises the Southern Oregon PBS Board of Directors with respect to whether the programming and other policies of the station are meeting the specialized educational and cultural needs of the community.

Why do we need a Community Advisory Board?

Southern Oregon PBS is committed to the community we serve; however, we do not operate under the assumption that we alone know what is best for the community. Without the input and involvement of the community, we could never adequately serve its needs. The Community Advisory Board keeps us advised of how well we're doing.


What is involved with being a member of the CAB?

The CAB meets twice a year for about 4 hours each time. Other duties may include additional viewing of videotape material for further discussion. The term of service is three years.
