The Department of Communications will be hosting the National Community Radio Governance Indaba in Polokwane, Limpopo Province from the 20 – 26 September 2012.

 

The main objective of the Indaba is to capacitate community radio stations on governance issues and promote adherence to corporate governance and regulatory compliance. The Indaba is part of an ongoing capacity building programme by the Department to empower stations to develop and implement corporate governance systems. Essential to this system are accountability and reporting to the communities that these stations exist to serve.

 

The last Indaba was hosted in 2007 in Durban and it focused on sustainability. This year’s theme is corporate governance as key to sustainability. In brief, no sustainability can be possible without a robust corporate governance culture. This is based on lessons learnt since 2007 that despite huge investment into the sector by the government, the sector is still wobbling owing mainly to governance challenges.

 

Over 200 delegates from the broader community radio sector are expected to attend, including the community radio stations, the regulator, Members of Parliament and sector bodies.

 

Details are as follows:
Date:    20 – 26 September 2012
Venue: Protea Hotel,
The Ranch, Polokwane,
Limpopo Province
