WGXC Community Council is a group appointed by the Wave Farm Board of Directors. The Council serves in a significant advisory capacity to station management. It represents and reflects both the diversity of potential listeners served within the WGXC 90.7-FM coverage map, as well as the station’s active constituents. In addition to representation, the Council provides fundraising leadership and support to enable the station sustainability and growth. Members serve on at least one (and no more than two) of the following committees: Fundraising, Outreach, Programming, and Policy and Internal Affairs. The public is invited to observe Council meetings. Every meeting includes a time for public comments at the conclusion of the meeting. For more information, contact Lynn Sloneker lynn [at] wgxc.org.
