We respectfully request the BVCAC to provide $2,000 in funding towards our upcoming concentrated efforts in outreach
activities scheduled between October 2011 – December 2011. Funding will be specifically applied to pay for :
Hire a local designer (preferably a youth still in High School) to create graphics for a CICK T-shirt
- print T-shirt
- distribute to current members at nominal cost to increase visibility in the community
- sell T-shirts to new members (note: this will not be an income generator, but will cover costs)
Approach SpeeDee Interior Stationary to have an artist design a display of radio/music related books and CICK
information on Main Street store-front window
- coordinate timing of Main St window display with outreach party
- increase visibility on Main Street, reaching people from all walks of life
Smithers Community Radio(CICK 93.9) has been in broadcasting since January 2010. While we have received
overwhelming enthusiasm from the community members who learn about us, we are not yet well known in the Bulkley
Valley. We have only 24 paid memberships. We have done basic publicity campaigns including live broadcasts of events
like Dub in the Pub and maintaining a presence at the Fall Fair. However, with high profile events such as ‘A Valley Home
Companion’ being put on hold, we have not achieved the recognition we need in our community. We have successfully
received funding from Community/Campus Radio Fund of Canada to hire two High School interns this year to tackle
administrative needs and to mentor them in creating local interviews. However, we do not have a strong presence in the
High School. We are at a turning point, where volunteer DJs are needed and membership levels must rise in order for us
to survive before our Board members burn out.
