Join the Sounding Board

Your voice matters. Your community matters.

Iowa Public Radio is forming a community advisory board — the Sounding Board — to provide perspective and guidance to help us better serve all Iowans. We're looking for a diverse range of voices — from all backgrounds, races, viewpoints and cities — to share the unique experiences, interests and needs of their community.

As a member of the Sounding Board, you will:

  • Serve a two-year term
  • Meet at least two times a year
  • Advise IPR in questions related to programming, organizational objectives and community impact
  • Stay knowledgeable of IPR's services and programs
  • Actively engage and communicate on the issues at hand as the voice of your community
  • Speak with other members of your community on their needs and the impact of public radio

Applications will be accepted through December 16 and considered by the Sounding Board steering committee.

Purpose of the Sounding Board

The Sounding Board is Iowa Public Radio's connection to the many communities we serve. It's our way of staying plugged in to what's happening and what's important to communities across the state. The Sounding Board helps IPR answer important questions about how the organization can better serve all listeners, members and stakeholders. The board plays an advisory role and has no authority over decisions, operations or management of IPR.
