Hi, everybody!
First day in Launceston – very exciting meeting all eChamps! Changes, changes, changes… This morning was about sharing experiences and information about our radio stations and talking about changes that we think are necessary. It was interesting to note that even being from different backgrounds and living in different states in Australia we have a lot in common and we face similar challenges at our radio stations. Sharing experiences is the beginning . Now, we can help each other out in finding out solutions and implementing them. And, of course, help our radio stations to connect even more to our communities.

eChamps Training – it’s about change

What a day! The eChamps training is turning out to be an amazing opportunity to share ideas and experiences from our individual stations. It’s so interesting to discover that we have a common story to tell.

Change is impacting every aspect of life, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the context of radio broadcasting. I guess this is because the radio station is a place that actively reflects what members of the community feel is the most important aspects of their culture.

Looking forward to covering the conference with all the other eChamps, learning from all the other participants at the conference and making sense of the wonderful thing that is change!

 

Don’t forget to seek the eChamps out in our custom designed black tees!

NEMBC Conference – Place to be !

Had an excellent morning – getting knowledge about different aspects of social media.The conference can be quoted as the best platform which is highlighting problems faced by various community radio stations around Australia. Problems such as less knowledge about social media – facebook and twitter. Problems such as – Financial position of stations and yes problems about engagement of presenters with their local community.

Thus main aim of this conference is to outline how we can overcome these problems and that’s exactly – “ what we are doing“! We are discussing problems and various suggestions are coming in about how we can solve and overcome these problems.

The day has just begun and there is lot to witness….So friends I’ll keep you updated!
