WORT's Community Advisory Board or CAB is comprised of community members interested in the diverse needs and interests of WORT's listening audience. The CAB advises WORT's Board of Directors as to how the station's programming and policies address community needs.
The CAB meets 6-8 times per year and also helps with special events such as pledge drives, outreach and fund raisers. If you are not already a WORT volunteer, joining the CAB is a great way to get involved! Women, minorities and people of all ages are encouraged to apply. WORT is an equal opportunity, affirmative action organization.
