New WYOU Board Members Elected at Meeting Held at Wilmar Center
This past weekend, the WYOU annual membership meeting at the Wilmar Center in Madison was a success. Director Charles Uphoff spoke to the gathering about the state of the station as well as the need for board members to get involved with fund raising (due to the passing of the Video Competition Act which effectively placed a sunset on PEG funding in three years).
Following the Executive Director's statements, attendees heard from Eric Allin, the station's Technical Director and then Robert Lughai, Program Coordinator & Education Director.
The membership then listened to statements from those board members on the ballot before casting votes.
New board members: Natalie Hinckley, Craig Meyer (newly-appointed Treasurer), Steve Singer, and Yamina Stiet. They join existing members: Jeremy Rintz (Chair), Guy Swansboro (Vice-Chair), Sara Meredith (Secretary), Rosemary Bodolay, and Heidi Johnson.
