CKUT’s Annual General Meeting is fast approaching. We will convene to make any decisions relating to by-law changes and member motions, elect steering, board, and programming committee members, and learn about fun that has taken place in during the past year at CKUT!

COMMITTEES

CKUT’s various committees assemble to discuss and debate everything from the meaning of “alternative” media to who will fix the downstairs toilet. Participating on a CKUT committee can be sometimes fascinating, sometimes excruciating and often challenging. Email chair@ckut.ca if you are interested or would like more info.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Board of Directors follows the directives of the membership, reads the fine print, approves the annual budget, engages in community outreach, and keeps CKUT’s eye on the bigger picture. The CKUT Board of Directors includes members who are McGill undergraduate and post-graduate students, McGill faculty and staff members, CKUT volunteers, staff, and residents of the general Montreal area.

The CKUT Board of Directors is composed of at 9 – 13 Directors, who are elected at the Annual General Meeting in accordance with the By-Laws and the CKUT Election Policy.

STEERING COMMITTEE

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.

Meetings are held every Wednesday from 1-3pm at the station. 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.
