The Community Advisory Board

WHQR's Community Advisory Board (CAB) advises the station on its programming policies, goals, and decisions. It provides a means by which the Board of Directors can evaluate the station's effectiveness in serving the educational and cultural needs of the public. It is also asked to evaluate the station’s outreach and visibility.

The CAB is composed of eight or more members selected from the station’s listening area, meeting 4 times a year or as determined by the CAB. A member of the CAB, appointed by the CAB Chair, serves as ex-officio, non-voting member of the Board of Directors.
