The CAB advises the Kekahu Foundation Board Of Directors (BOD) on how programming and policies can best meet the educational and cultural needs of our island community. The CAB is mandated by grant funding KKCR receives from the Corporation For Public Broadcasting, the CPB, to operate independently from the BOD and hold public meetings with the community to receive programming feedback, policy suggestions and offer a starting point for those interested in learning about volunteering at KKCR. The CAB meets twice yearly at different locations around the island to make it easier for residents to attend. Email:
