Put your shoulder to the MAIN wheel

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.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.
