Join our Team!

Want to get involved with your community radio station?  Consider joining either our Advancement or Creative Writing Team.  Here's everything you need to know:

Advancement Team: We are seeking a diverse group of people who wish to support KPTZ by giving of their time and talent. Our vision is to see a team come together that represents our community – from those working in a business, or staying at home, to those who are retired, all ages welcome. 

Our objective is to engage and involve donors in activities throughout the year that will strengthen their connection to KPTZ and which will result in donors increasing the size of their gifts.  

What is the time commitment required?  To be successful in our objective, team members should commit to being on the team for one year.  We will have weekly meetings as a group, and individual assignments for engagement activities.  This is a new team concept for KPTZ – so we’ll work out the details together as we forge ahead.

What are skills we seek?  You have an outgoing personality and like to meet people and converse with them.  Willing to be a host for station tours and and arrange interview sessions with board members.  Enjoy doing research, and uncovering data that will help us identify donor profiles.  You have writing talent and good organizational skills.  Not all team members need to have all skills, as we can divide up the tasks to suit the people on the team. If you have a desire to help KPTZ grow and serve our community, please consider joining this team.  

Examples of Tasks:  Review donor list, research and identify donor profiles, and put together list of potential large donors for cultivation.

Host tours of KPTZ station, and introduce Board Member and DJ’s.  Facilitate discussion around history of station, type of programming, involvement with community.  Find out from donor why station is important, what value the donor places on KPTZ.

Create a “Welcome New Member” packet and send to all members.

Coordinate and facilitate a “Care & Contact” Roundtable Luncheon. Members invited to give their thoughts on what are highest needs of our community.  We will compile their input to use in our decision for choosing next year’s partner non-profit organizations.

Write up highlights of partnership with non-profit organizations and ways for our donors to get involved.
