New membership coordinator!

Kim Vallière is the NCRA’s new bilingual Membership Coordinator. The position is funded as part of a grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Enhancement of Official Languages Program.

Kim is from Rouyn-Noranda in Northwest Quebec and is finishing up her Masters of Communications at the University of Ottawa. For the last year and a half she has been volunteering at CHUO-FM, the only bilingually-licenced campus station in Canada, producing “Autour du Bloc” (Around the Block) a weekly arts and current affairs show.

We're thrilled to have Kim on board to help make the NCRA more bilingual. She will be responsible for:

~producing an online handbook to help make stations more bilingual
~translating the NCRA website into French
~helping produce a weekly newsletter

as well as all the other support work members need: from questions about compliance to finding resources and helping plan regional conferences. Phewf -- that's a lot for 24 hours a week. Her email is Welcome Kim!
