Due to the recent loss of seven members, the Mountain Area Information Network (MAIN) will need new members on its Board of Directors.
MAIN is a nonprofit community network using integrated media technologies to expand the local public sphere and to support:
• participatory democracy
• citizen access to media
• independent journalism
• local cultural and artistic expression
• locally owned businesses
• social and economic justice
• environmental stewardship
MAIN is the license holder for 103.5 WPVM (low-power radio) in Asheville, and MAIN’s directors vote on important issues for the radio station. As one of the remaining (not banned) volunteers at WPVM, I am inviting the readers of the Mountain Xpress to consider volunteering for the MAIN board. You can e-mail current members of the board by visiting this Web page: main.nc.us/board. You may call the MAIN office for information: 255-0182. If you are interested in what the volunteers at WPVM have to say about the current issues at the station, visit our blogspot: www.wpvm.blogspot.com.
