AIRWAVES- September

Posted on: September 29th, 2011 | Author: General Manager | Filed under: AIRWAVES

Dear Board Members:


The last few weeks have been very exciting ones for KSDP. Let me share with you some of the more electrifying events that have occurred.


  • As most of you know we held our annual board election last Thursday on the 22nd of September. There were 4 seats available and 7 people running. The race was very close on all ends, and we are able to announce that the new board of directors for the 2011-2012 session will be:


o   Luke Meinert (3 year term)

o   Dan Williams (2 year term)

o   Jim Brown (2 year term)

o   Marta Varga (1 year term)


Jack Foster will continue in his seat for another 2 years. Congratulations to everyone and thank you to all who ran. We at KSDP are looking forward to seeing the radio station advance to new levels this upcoming year.  We also want to extend our sincerest thanks to Mary Olsen and Laura Clark Bean for being such excellent assets to our radio station over this last year. THANK YOU!


  • On the week of the 14th I had the opportunity to fly out to Anchorage for a Fundraising and Development Conference that was put on by the APBC and Coast Alaska. The focus of the conference was how to improve your stations underwriting and membership departments. These are two areas that KSDP needs to give some much needed attention. Some key ideas that were taken away from the classes were: membership drives, creating value for our radio station, community involvement, and corporate relations. Much good came from this trip and I am very excited to discuss several of the ideas that came out of it with the board during our next meeting.


  • The radio station needs to have a board meeting to welcome in the new members and discuss officer positions. It will be best to have this meeting sometime in the month of October so that it will qualify as occurring in the 2nd quarter. Please be in touch if there are times that do not work for you in October.
