Community Advisory Board

KPFA’s Community Advisory Board (CAB), the local group mandated by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, is charged with assessing and reporting the needs of the community served by KPFA to the governing board and management of KPFA.

Members are appointed by the Local Station Board and meetings are held once per month, usually on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Check this website to confirm the date, time and place of the next meeting.  Meetings are open to the public.

The law provides that “[t]he role of the board shall be solely advisory in nature….” It also stipulates that the board shall advise the governing body of the station and therefore must be distinct from and independent of the governing body.The purpose of the advisory board is to provide a vehicle for effective community input to the station’s governing body about station programming, community service and impact on the community from the station’s major policy decisions. Congress believed that the establishment of community advisory  boards would assist the stations to develop programs and policies that address the specific needs of the communities that they endeavor to serve.

The advisory board is intended to provide the public the opportunity to be heard on station programming, community service and impact on the community of major policy decisions.

Current CAB Board Members: Robin Collin, Jennifer Fazio, Judith Gips, Rahman Jamaal, Steve Martinot, Mary Prophet, Carol Wolfley.
