KWMR Board

About KWMR’s Board of Directors

KWMR is owned and operated by KWMR, a non-profit, charitable corporation organized pursuant to Section 501(c)3 of the IRS code. As with any corporation, KWMR has a board of directors.

It is the board that sets the direction and tone of the station, forms committees to address things like general policy and emergency preparedness and fundraising. The board is made up of people from the local community, usually folks of long residency with strong ties to the area. They often serve or have served on other boards of directors as well.
