The NEMBC has once again made its objections on the proposed changes to the Community Broadcasting Foundation known.
The CBF released a paper on the proposed changes last month with the NEMBC warning of “dire consequences” if the proposal is implemented.
Vice President Nick Dmyterko says, ‘The new model proposed by the CBF is totally undemocratic; there will be no membership base, there will be no elections and there will be no system of representation. It will become a top-down self-appointed board and hand-picked organisation’.
The NEMBC has started a petition on their website this week with sample letters for community broadcasters to send to oppose this new model.
