Kootenay Radio is a member-owned and -operated radio station in British Columbia. There are several staff members and more than 100 volunteers.

Types of members

Board of directors


  1. 6 Canadian Directors: These directors must be Canadian citizens.
  2. 1 open Director: These directors can be of any nationality.

Other governance issues

  • Officers: President and vice president are selected from among the seven-member board, but the positions of manager, secretary, and treasurer can be selected from outside of the board. People serving in these positions must be Canadian citizens.
  • Committees can be formed by the directors from their own ranks or from the membership.
