Since the start, KTOO has been a community-owned membership institution. The volunteer members of the Board of Directors govern the affairs of KTOO Public Media, the non-profit corporation that holds the FCC licenses for our stations. Members of the board represent a broad range of interests, backgrounds, professions and viewpoints.
The members of the board represent the membership and the community, and act in a variety of ways to ensure a healthy organization. Board responsibilities include setting budgets, making policy, planning for the future, hiring and supervising the organization’s president and representing KTOO to the public. The Board has adopted a five-year Strategic Plan, reflecting our priorities and goals for 2020 through 2025. The plan is online here. We welcome public comments on how we’re doing.
The board holds regular meetings 10 times a year (usually once a month, except August and December). The board follows a typical meeting agenda and generally meets on the first Thursday of the month at 5:00 p.m. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meetings are held via Zoom. The current meeting schedule is posted here.
