GLT Friends Council

What is the GLT Friends Council?

The GLT Friends Council is a diverse group of people from the communities we serve who value independent, public radio and who have committed time and resources to further GLT's mission.

The main purpose of the Council is to increase the financial well being of WGLT to insure its ongoing operation.  Additional activities include advocacy, and the opportunity for GLT staff to solicit and receive advisory opinions from a group that represents community perspectives.

The GLT Friends Council meets quarterly. The 2016 Council meetings will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel in Bloomington, IL at 5 PM on March 2, June 8, September 14 and November 9. Quarterly meeting minutes are available by request. Please email your request.
