CJMP News Proposal


Is it possible to raise money specifically to promote program?

It would be a news and special affairs program – a CJMP project

Fundraising as a CJMP project for promotion of the project with cross promotions of other CJMP shows Carrie wants to update the sponsorship policy to make sure you can do this

Carrie – lots of excitement around idea

Looking for a potential coordinator

NCRA Issues


Zoe - Workshops presented and attended were very well received

Zoe - made some good friendships with CKUT (Montreal) and a Kingston

NCRA provided grant for “Resonating Reconciliation”

Don - Benefits from membership – member email list, legal counsel, Program Exchange

Not sure if there is influence from NCRA on CRFC grants

Being able to understand the topics of conversation – Equity and Diversity

NCRA Board is not holding to principles that they have defined for themselves

Don - Can we make a statement about steps to address systemic oppression when we apply for membership?

Zoe – Hiring committee did not follow the policy – diverse outreach was not followed

When it was brought to their attention they extended the period.

Recent position was posted only in English – forced to resend in French.

Don will let them know that regular consultation with Zoe will be done.

Only one case being investigated – Zionist persecution.

Zoe is looking at an alternative Media Advocacy Group – backing fund is.

Not recommending attendance by young women – was it East Coast thing? No recognition of indigenous people. Was it the environment?

Box of T-shirts – okayed by Tara – Invoice with Zoe’s signature

Colin’s Base Camp is capable of doing screen print – Don will check with Zoe to get this done

Screen printed T-shirts – $20 T-shirts – do we owe money?

Carrie - Check with Tara – is there any screen printed T-shirts owed + get brochures?
