Board unanimously votes to appoint Emma Couch and Julie Spencer.
The recent adoption of a new constitution for the community radio sector’s Technorama hascreated the opportunity to appoint two additional Board members, increasing the group’s Board to nine.
At the June 19 Board meeting, the Board unanimously voted to appoint Emma Couch and Julie Spencer as Ordinary Committee members, positions which will be held through to the 2018 AGM, when they become eligible for election.
John Maizels, President of Technorama Incorporated, said:
“The Technorama Board has worked hard to ensure that we can provide skills-based leadership. Both Emma and Julie bring a wealth of professional and personal experience that plays directly to Technorama’s core missions.”
“Emma Couch has been heavily involved with Community Radio as a broadcaster, organiser and trainer and has a solid technical bent. Julie Spencer started in Community radio before moving into a professional career which puts her in the upper ranks of broadcast engineers in Australia as a hands-on project manager and facility developer.”
“We are very fortunate to have such passionate and committed people in our ranks, especially at a time when Technorama has been focusing on improving diversity, gender equity and skills within the technologist community.”
