From the Chair
Save the Date for Monday, June 20! We will hold a WCOM Family Solstice Celebration on Pickards Mountain. This will not be a fundraiser; there will be no admission charge, although there will be some sort of advance signup. It will be a party for WCOM members with live music by Tony Williamson. Vimala’s Curryblossom Café will donate the food! WCOM will provide non-alcoholic beverages. The party is open to hosts and volunteers, their families, and their underwriters.
Donald (DJ Smooth Jazz) Brumfield has stepped forward to agree to become a badly needed Simian operator. We still need a couple more so that someone trained will always available when we have automation problems. We also badly need someone willing to fill the vacant Engineering Committee chair. Don Emmitt will get new station t-shirts fabricated for WCOM. These should be ready by the June 20 celebration.
The biggest volunteer need we have is a volunteer coordinator. A volunteer committee chairperson would be second. Someone to take on the website would be next. Programming and Engineering always need people.
All shows currently being broadcast now have underwriting!! The Silverspot fundraiser netted $756. In combination with the terrific efforts by y’all on underwriting this spring, our financial situation has rebounded from less than $2000 in early April to $3800 just five weeks later. Our new cash flow projections for the rest of 2016 look promising. We decided, therefore, to establish and deposit $200 monthly to a savings or money market account in order to build a reserve fund.
Spinitron music reporting for compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act will return for this quarter on June 17-20.
The Board of Directors meets next on Wednesday, June 8 at 4PM.
