Tillicum Foundation Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the governing body of Coast Community Radio and is responsible for fundraising, strategic planning, policy making and fiscal oversight.

Board Meetings

The Board meets the fourth Wednesday of each month at 5:00pm. Meetings usually last about two hours. Time, date and locations of meetings are announced on our website, on the air, and in the Daily Astorian newspaper seven days before a meeting occurs.
Meetings are open to the public except during executive sessions. When held, closed executive sessions generally last about a half hour at the end of the general meeting.
