Meetings and Committees

WMNF Calendar

A lot of the work at WMNF gets done by the efforts of the station's committees. The Board has several standing committees (indicated below by *), and there is also the Volunteer Committee, and a number of other committees that meet to accomplish specific tasks (CD Committee, Program Change Committee) or provide an ongoing forum for discussion (News & Public Affairs Committee).

Serving on a committee is a great way to learn how WMNF operates and how we make decisions. You can help make community happen here at 88.5!

All WMNF committee meetings (see descriptions below) are open to the public, with the exception of some Personnel issues covered by the Personnel committee. If you need to get in touch with the chair of a committee, email them or call our office at 813-238-8001.
