Community Media Webinars

It is hard to keep up to date on the regulatory matters, emerging technology and engagement issues that affect you. It is even more costly to get time with attorneys, professionals and others who can help you improve your organization, ensure you are in legal compliance and find cost effective ideas that help you.

NFCB offers webinars to members. These educational conversations with some of community media’s innovators and smart minds give you an opportunity to learn, to get questions answered, and to hear about best practices. If you miss one or want a refresher, these webinars are archived so members can rewatch them or review the notes.

Some of our webinars have covered:

  • Political broadcasting and requirements for stations during the election season
  • How to create and discover member data to strengthen your understanding of listeners and donors
  • New public file requirements for stations
  • Effectively advocating for and telling the story of community radio
  • Building good governance
  • Podcasting for community media makers
  • The role of music discovery in community radio

Past webinars are available on demand to member stations in the Solution Center. You can join now to get updated about future webinars.

Upcoming Webinar

“Emergency Preparedness: Lessons in the Heat of the Moment” is NFCB’s March 15 webinar, featuring Amanda Eichstaedt, station manager and executive director, and Richard Dillman, chief engineer, of KWMR in Point Reyes Station, Calif.

How does your community radio station respond in the event a fire, flood or other natural disaster strikes your region? How are your staff and volunteers trained to address urgent needs of your audience? This conversation covers emergency preparedness and community radio. Participants will gather insights from a community station that sits on a major fault, and is prone to flooding and wildfires.

You will learn how one station was able to work effectively with its area first responders, neighbors and listeners to be a go-to information hub. Their emergency preparedness efforts will inform your station’s thinking and response plans. And the lessons learned may help your station to realize the greatest success in service to your city.
