About the CAB

The KLRU Community Advisory Board is composed of up to 30 individuals who reflect the diverse interests, concerns, organizations, issues and populations of the Central Texas community. The CAB helps guide KLRU in a variety of ways. Membership in the CAB is open to anyone who lives in the designated market area for KLRU and who has demonstrated an interest in KLRU. Members are selected by the existing CAB after being nominated by the staff, or the CAB, or they may nominate themselves. The role of the CAB is to provide a link between the community-at-large and the staff of KLRU. Members elected to the CAB commit to serve a two-year term.

The duties of the CAB are:

  • Act as a liaison between KLRU and the community.
  • Raise community awareness about KLRU, its programming and its services.
  • Advise KLRU on issues of importance in the community where KLRU may have an impact.
  • Encourage community involvement in KLRU projects, activities.
  • Ensure that the content of the programming reflects the community.
