PBS Volunteer News 8, 2017




Hello and thanks for taking the time to read the PBS Volunteer News.  
So the news from PBS is that we had a record fundraiser in 2017 and we convey a huge thanks to all those who volunteered their time and effort to help PBS run a smoothly run fundraiser which will partially pay for the station's operations over the next year. The joy of success is bittersweet as we're losing our Membership Coordinator Sarah Pratt. Any any slick administrators out there with solid experience working on databases, improving processes, (and more) who want to work at PBS??? Check out the  position description here.

PBS Policies and Procedures

It is important for all volunteers and staff to be familiar with this. See the P&P here and http://pbs.org.au/policy. The Policies and Procedures Handbook ensures that PBS remains in safe compliance with the Codes of Practice and other relevant legislation. It also positions PBS volunteers, announcers and staff to operate with a shared, clear understanding of how things work at PBS. Please read it carefully. And if you’re inspired, why not consider becoming a PBS shareholder? The AGM is held in November.
