Consultation Services for Members


We offer a variety of services to our members in good standing at a fair, negotiated price


September 13, 2021


Hello Members

The NCRA/ANREC has been expanding its offerings to membership with our new one-on-one or group consultations around a variety of topics.  Recently we have worked with Canoe FM’s board and staff to help the station build a new strategic plan.  With permission from Roxanne, we have included a copy of that plan for other stations to use. 

Additionally, we have been working with 4-5 stations located in the Ottawa Valley, Haliburton, Prince Edward Country area (Eastern Ontario) specifically around the listener and volunteer surveys to assist those stations in gathering information to better help their operational plans.

These are just two examples of consultations services that the NCRA/ANREC staff are now offering.  With a combined 30 years of experience in a variety of roles (Staff, Board, Host), the NCRA/ANREC staff want further help stations on a case by case basis. Some areas of support include (but are not limited to):

  • Strategic Planning
  • Operational Planning
  • Surveys
  • AGM Support (Facilitating your AGM, Anti-Oppression Training)
  • Customized Board and Staff Training
  • Station operational reviews
  • Hiring Support (including sitting/chairing a hiring committee)

Feel free to contact Barry for more information, and to coordinate a competitive quote.  These types of services are extra, however, compared to third-party companies, we can offer a very good rate with extensive knowledge in radio operations and strategic development.

On behalf of the Canoe FM  Board of Directors, I would like to sincerely thank Barry and Luke from the NCRA  for facilitating our 2021-2024 strategic planning development session. We are so pleased with the end results.

Barry began by sending out a survey to our Board members asking them to list 3-5 priorities, these priorities gave him a starting point for discussion with the Board.

The extensive knowledge and insight of radio and not-for-profit organizations which both Barry and Luke bring to the table helped us to set goals and develop a chart form plan on how our station should achieve these goals.

My Board is very pleased and excited about our now approved Strategic Plan and the work that is ahead of us during the next three years.  If you are looking for someone to facilitate your Strategic Planning session, remember that the NCRA does offer this service at an affordable rate and Barry and Luke understand and are committed to the success of our organizations, 

Yours in Community Radio

Last Wednesday [Feb 2022] night we held our AGM with over 200 people in attendance. Barry was incredibly patient explaining things to our elderly members while Luke did a fabulous job of controlling and deflecting in the chat box. A week later I still have people coming up to me complimenting their calmness and professionalism.
