KPFA, the first listener-sponsored, community radio station in the United States, has emerged from a fierce struggle to preserve its local autonomy and its mission of peace and social justice. A major achievement in this struggle was the establishment of elected Local Station Boards at KPFA and throughout the Pacifica network.
Unlike the former local advisory board, the new Station Board has acquired important powers to better represent listeners, staff and volunteers. It is responsible for reviewing the station budget, helping to choose the station manager, and selecting Pacifica National Board directors from among its own members.
The Local Station Board holds monthly open meetings to which the public is invited and which include public comment periods.
To leave a message for the Local Station Board, call 510 848-6767 extension 635, or use the LSB Feedback Form.
KPFA meetings are streamed live at kpfalsb.org. This site is privately owned and is not affiliated with KPFA or the Pacifica Foundation.
Draft agenda is normally posted a few days before the meeting.
The next fiscal year begins October 1 and planning for it is under way. All interested parties are invited to attend a budget workshop to discuss these vital questions.
