NHPR's Community Advisory Board

NHPR’s Community Advisory Board is a panel of listeners from across the state, representative of the communities we serve, and allows us to gather meaningful feedback about our programming, policies and services.

NHPR relies on a Community Advisory Board to give the station regular feedback on our programs, Trustee decisions, and the needs of our audience.

We are currently accepting applications for the new CAB members. If you would like to apply to be part of the Community Advisory Board, please fill out in full the application found here: https://nhpr.typeform.com/to/j7Pzcc

The most recent Community Advisory Board meeting was held at NHPR in Concord on Saturday, November  3, 2018. The next meeting will take place in the spring of 2019.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Why does NHPR need a Community Advisory Board?

A: Not only is it a requirement of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, but NHPR recognizes the importance of obtaining constructive feedback on a consistent basis from the people we serve.

Q: What does the Community Advisory Board do?

A: The role of the Community Advisory Board is to provide feedback on programming, policies, new initiatives and services. 

Q: How will the Community Advisory Board be chosen?

A: We ask people to submit an application so that we can create an advisory board that represents a broad range of demographics, including geography and experience. The Community Advisory Board will have a steering committee composed of three members of the panel, one member of the NHPR Board of Trustees, and a member of NHPR programming staff.  This steering committee will be responsible for helping to develop the agendas and will make annual reports to the Board of Trustees.

Q: What kind of commitment will members of the Community Advisory Board be agreeing to?

A: The Community Advisory Board  meets twice a year at the NHPR studios in Concord. Community Advisory Board members are elected for one three-year term and also eligible to serve a second term.

Q: What will happen at Community Advisory Board meetings?

A: Meetings typically begin in the morning at 9:00 am with comments from NHPR’s leadership team, , followed by station updates and education sessions presented by members of the NHPR staff. The Community Advisory Board will then discuss a particular topic or issue for the remainder of the morning. You will be asked to do some homework before the meeting based on that topic or issue. For example, if we are developing a new show, you might be asked to listen to pilot segments and provide feedback; or if we were launching a new digital initiative, we might ask you to “road-test” it in advance. More discussion on other topics follows after lunch. The meetings are moderated by a professional facilitator who guides the discussion and provides a report afterwards. Lunch is provided. The meetings typically conclude by 2:00 pm.
