Our Circle of Engagement
NFCB believes great content drives engagement; engagement drives revenue development and increased revenue allows greater innovation and creativity in content. Our services are geared to that end.
One-on-one support: Member stations receive phone, email and online support for all those big and small issues as part of membership.
Expertise: Member stations get access to up-to-date and reliable guidance and resources vetted through legal and media professionals.
Fundraising help: NFCB’s fundraising tools are part of membership, boosting your development goals.
Programming support: From streaming to playlists to key programming, NFCB members have access to a range of big discounts that help you grow.
Training and engagement: Online learning, webinars, email lists and member chats help you learn from your peers and great minds nationwide.
Membership is an investment in your organization. Many stations have very limited training and staff development budgets. Paying for legal compliance information (or paying fines for being out of compliance), manuals, advice and online learning are expensive. NFCB offers the most affordable option for community media. No complicated math — membership is based on your annual budget.
NFCB helps member stations engage audiences, from small urban markets, rural areas, Native American, Latino, and African American populations. NFCB can even help with your budget development, financial statements and preparing for an audit, as well as strategic planning, running capital campaigns and human resource management.
Since 1978, the National Federation of Community Broadcasters has been an essential nexus. Our knowledgeable staff has served as both as a friend and mentor to veteran media makers and first-timers. Membership in NFCB helps you realize the full potential of community media by providing a peer network and customized professional services. NFCB helps you improve your capacity for raising revenue, creating compelling content, and strengthening active engagement with your listeners.
