CHSR-FM in Fredericton, NB is looking forward to hosting the annual National Campus/Community Radio Conference for 2018, the grand gathering of hosts, staff, volunteers, artists, volunteers, board members and other wonderful people from member stations of the NCRA from across Canada.

The conference will run from June 6 (arrival day) to June 10 (departure day).
