The latest edition of the CBX, the magazine of the CBAA, is out now!
In this issue, we take a detailed look at the sector’s history as we reach a milestone of 40 years since the introduction of the community radio sector. Former CBAA President John Martin gives us a timeline of community radio, and details the early events that paved the way for the community radio sector to become what it is today.
The CBAA’s music initiative Amrap has appointed critically acclaimed musician Dan Sultan as the first Community Radio Amrap Ambassador. The new Ambassador program will recognise Australian artists who are consistently supported by community radio through Amrap.
President of the Muslim Women's Welfare of Australia and Program Coordinator of 2MFM - Muslim Community Radio, Faten El Dana has been awarded the A.H. Beard’s Community Hero Award as part of the NSW Government 2014 Women of the Year Awards.
The Community Hero Award showcases women who are local heroes or volunteers who have made an outstanding contribution to the NSW community.
In important news for community broadcasting organisations registered as a co-operative, a uniform set of national laws for co-operatives is being progressively introduced for States and Territories.
This will be achieved by each State and Territory either adopting the template Co-operatives National Law (CNL) or passing alternative legislation consistent with the Co-operatives National Law, in line with their jurisdiction’s Government and Parliamentary processes.
The CNL will reduce red tape and associated business costs for co-operatives on a number of levels.
