Community Engagement Boards

KPCW Community Advisory Board

What does the Community Advisory Board do?

The Community Advisory Board's purpose is to review KPCW's programming goals, services and policy decisions of KPCW and its Board of Trustees, in order to advise the staff and the Board of its effectiveness in meeting the needs of the communities KPCW has been licensed to serve. The role of the Community Advisory Board is purely advisory.

Some topics addressed at the Community Advisory Board meetings may include:

  • Accuracy in the news
  • Sound quality of KPCW
  • Diversity of perspectives and issues
  • On-air fundraising during KPCW membership drives
  • KPCW's programming schedule
