Each station in the Pacifica Network has a Local Station Board whose members assist in the governance of the local station.

The Board members are elected from among the station's membership and staff, and some of them also serve on the Pacifica National Board. This Board represents you, the WBAI listeners and members and helps determine the current and future direction of the station. We urge you to get involved. Visit here regularly to see what the Board is doing and perhaps even participate in shaping the future of WBAI, an invaluable and iconic community resource.
