A Message for All Northside Broadcasting Co-operative Presenters, Sponsors, Shareholders

20 November 2020

I am honoured to have been elected by the new Board of Directors as Chair of Northside Broadcasting Co-operative Limited for 2020-2021. This is an exciting time of change with virtually a whole new Board elected at Northside’s AGM last week, an event that was conducted online for the first time in the 39-year history of our station.

Besides myself, Directors elected at the AGM for the next 12 months are:

  • Louise Baker
  • Jane Frost
  • Sally Shepherd
  • Graham Steele
  • Gerry Stevens
  • Mary Jane Trujillo
  • Jerry Yoshida
  • Brendon Zhu

In addition, the new Board agreed last night to elect John Regan as our new Secretary and John has opted to be in that position, while not nominating or being an elected for a Board position. This is entirely permissible under our Co-op Rules. We are very lucky to have John with us as well, with his intimate knowledge of our Rules, his range of skills and work expertise, and also his experience and achievements as a driving member of the Grants Committee, which has had some particularly commendable successes in gaining grants for our station.

Our new Directors are all highly talented people who have tremendous skills to bring to the Board which has been entrusted to steer the station over the coming year.

It is also the first Board of Northside Broadcasting Co-operative Limited to have elected five women out of its nine Directors. And that may be a first for any radio station or possibly even any Board in Australia.

We are so fortunate to be a part of a community radio station that has become an integral part of Sydney’s north shore and in recent years through new and improved transmission facilities which has even extended its reach far beyond its original footprint, including the extensive reach provided by streaming.

However, we remain a community broadcasting service and our immediate north shore communities continue to be our priority as we maintain and grow our connections with our local audiences, sponsors, businesses and other stakeholders who are a part of the Northside Broadcasting family.

Our new Board would love to implement new plans and improvements for everyone immediately, but we will be thoughtful and considerate of any changes that we might see that need to occur.

We will welcome input and advice from everyone in our organisation and we also ask for your patience as we proceed with care in some initiatives, which will include establishing a range of new committees besides maintaining and strengthening existing ones, such as Programming and Grants.

The new Northside Board looks forward very much to the coming weeks and months and we will keep everyone informed and advise you all of developments and innovations as we move forward.

The minutes of our inaugural Board meeting will be available soon for everyone to see and our practice will be to have Board minutes available for you within a short period of time after each monthly meeting. We will advise you when and where you will be able to locate them at the station.

Kind regards

April Pressler Chair, Northside Broadcasting Co-operative Limited
