WORT2020

WORT2020 was WORT's long range visioning process, conducted in 2011-12. At that time, the Long Range Planning Committee was:
  • David Devereaux-Weber - Board Member
  • Vickie Eiden - Board President
  • Jody McCann - Board Treasurer
  • Molly Stentz - News/Public Affairs Director
  • Norm Stockwell - Operations Coordinator

The goal of WORT2020 was to create an inclusive plan that the station's Board of Directors could use to guide and govern the station for years to comes. The plan expressed the desires of staff, volunteers, donors, and listeners who enjoy WORT.

The WORT Board of Directors hired Harry Webne-Behrman of Collaboration Initiative to facilitate this planning process. Some words from Harry: "I have a long-standing interest in helping people solve complex issues through collaborative, non-violent processes. I greatly enjoy teaching these skills to others, and I get great satisfaction from the honor of assisting others with difficult challenges on a wide range of substantive issues."


Objective

To identify priorities for WORT to accomplish in the next 5 - 10 years, and provide a set of recommendations for the Board to adopt in 2012.

The committee formed five work groups (click here for work group documents):

  • Audience Development & Fundraising
  • Staffing
  • Programming
  • Technology & Facilities
  • Governance
