Board of Directors and Committees

The foundation of KZFR's management is the volunteer support of the Board of Directors and various committees.

The Board is the guiding hand of KZFR.  Not involved in daily operational tasks, the Board manages KZFR's vision and trajectory, developing documents such as the Strategic Plan and the General Operating Budget.

Committees serve to develop the finer points of KZFR's sound and on-air identity. The Program Committee is chaired by the General Manager, includes KZFR programmers and community members, and serves to evaluate program applications, assess current programs, and initiate program self-evaluations. The Community Advisory Board includes members of the listener community and advises the GM and Board on the program matrix (schedule) and how the over-all offerings of KZFR can be modified to best serve the listening audience.

Other temporary committees are created at the discretion of the Board of Directors, which holds meetings open to the public.

You may download and print applications for the Board of Directors, Program Committee, and Community Advisory Board, or attend their meetings (see below).

KZFR Diversity Statement

Golden Valley Community Broadcasters is a community radio station dedicated to diversity in broadcasting. GVCB (KZFR) believes acceptance and understanding are vital parts of the diverse communities we represent. KZFR programs and actions reflect such diversity.

For KZFR, the concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences.  These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.  It is the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. 

It is about understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each individual.

Once per year KZFR BOD and Staff will participate in Diversity Training as offered by Chico State University Professor Tray Robinson, Director of University Diversity Programs and Inclusion.

The Board of Directors meetings occur the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 6:00pm at 341 Broadway, Suite 416. The BOD meetings for 2015 are as follows:
