On Organization and the WAIF Website
Some tidbits on how to restructure the organization itself, as well as some advice regarding WAIF's online presence.


Require four programmers meetings per year. Where programmers may be able to attend in house forums to receive updates, sign policy (as needed), etc. Organize the entire station files in order and proper sequence (office-by-office, meeting-by-meeting where board members, public and other individuals may have direct access. We may also need to appoint an Information Coordinator to coordinate and respond to public information requests.


Make website an information navigator where programmers, members, and listeners may have access to station news and important information.

    A few years ago, before the current board had assumed control and driven away many dedicated volunteers, they did have two programmer meetings a year. No it was not four, as you suggest, but at least it was something to keep the programmers somewhat up to date with the stations equipment and policies, and FCC policies (as most of us know are frequently updated). At the same time it kept the board and the station up to date with all the programmers. Just one more reason that there needs to be a change. No board has been perfect, but we do know that alot of important details have been cast by the wayside with the board that is currently in power. I like your planning. You guys are definitely doing your homework and I believe WAIF could use your ideas and dedication. I know that I was not happy when I heard of Derricks ousting. I voted for him because I figured he would do a great job. Too bad the current board never lets people do anything productive for WAIF anymore. Good luck guys!
