Miss our Annual Meeting? You can listen now…

In an effort to share our stories with a broader audience, in Sitka and further afield, we broadcast our annual meeting for the first time on Tuesday, December 18th, 2012. Check it out here if you missed it! The meeting started with the announcement of the board election results: Perry Edwards, Dan Etulain and Robert Hattle were all re-elected and Zac Mayberry was elected for the first time. Congratulations to each of you. Please join me in extending a hearty thank you to outgoing board president Ted Laufenberg who has been tremendously helpful with the Cable House renovations as very active member of the building committee. The meeting continued with reports on Raven Radio finances, renovations, news, CoastAlaska and programming. Thank you to Gary Gouker and Ted Howard for the musical interludes!

KCAW’s Robert Woolsey recently stopped by her class and learned how much work it takes to make jazz seem effortless. more
