CKUT’s various committees assemble to discuss and debate everything from the meaning of “alternative” media to who will clean the downstairs toilet. Participating on a CKUT committee can be sometimes fascinating, sometimes excruciating and often challenging.
To be eligible for a committee you must have been an active member (volunteering regularly, either on or off the air) for a minimum of three months and be available for the regular meeting times. Committee members are elected at the Annual General Meeting.
If you are interested in running for a committee, contact your department coordinator!
The Steering Committee is CKUT’s executive body, meeting weekly to discuss the administrative affairs of the station, short and long term planning, station events, etc. The committee is composed of staff and volunteer representatives, but community members and station volunteers are welcome to attend meetings.
In addition to meetings, volunteer reps should devote at least one additional hour per week to review documents and email in preparation for the meetings. Total time commitment: 10-12 hours a month.
