    Update on our Progress

    There has been a change of plans given the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope that all of our listeners and supporters are safe and secure.
    We have not been idle though in this period of time. The most important change that we have made is to add 3 new members to our Board of Directors so that we now have a complement of 7 Directors. An update to this site will made made shortly outlining the background of each of our directors, but we are very pleased to have such a diverse and varied set of people helping with this endeavour. We are also meeting regularly using video-conferencing and have a Strategic Planning session (also remote connection) scheduled for in late May.
    As you might have seen through email, on our Facebook page, or on our latest news below, we are looking to get community input into our programming as it has been over 5 years since we have talked to people in the community. We encourage all people living on the Gulf Islands to participate as the results of this survey will provide input into our strategic planning process. This is part of a new process of getting more community input into our programming decisions.
    Finally, we are also taking this time to review our music library and programming as we start to move towards the goal of providing more live and more specific types of streaming, podcasting and hopefully broadcast programs. Further announcements coming in this regards
