Join VPR's Community Forum
Every two years, a new group of volunteers joins VPR's Community Forum for some robust conversations and a lot of fun. Plus, there's definitely some quality emailing! It's a great way for VPR to get to know you and hear your thoughts about programs and public service.
The most recent Community Forum participated in discussions about VPR’s strategic plan. We had a "listening session" in which we had a chance to hear samples of some new programs VPR was considering. And we had some great discussions about public radio and media in general.
The Forum is a great way to get to know more about VPR, meet members of the staff, and meet other people interested in the future of public radio. At the end of the term, you’ll be surprised how much ground we've covered and how interesting it’s been.
There are two half-day sessions a year and meetings usually alternate between north and south (Burlington and Chester have been the locations to date). And we have a modest lunch together.
Sound like you? If so, we're taking applications now for the new Forum and it would be great to hear from you.
Visit VPR.net for more information and to apply to join the Community Forum.
