THIS WEEK (FEB 22 - MAR 03) IS CKXU'S LEVY INCREASE CAMPAIGN WEEK!
- CKXU currently get's $5 / semester / student from undergraduates of the University of Lethbridge
- Those funds are used to pay the staff and a tiny bit trickles down to our various Coordinator positions
- We DO NOT use these funds to buy things like computers, fancy lamps, or diamond rings. It goes to Human Resources, and always has.
- We have managed to squeeze every possible drop of dedication out of our staff and volunteers and we've reached a point where if we want to grow, we need more input. Financial input from a constant source.
- EXPANDING HUMAN RESOURCES!! We are seeking an increase by $3 / semester / student increase + C.P.I. (Consumer Price Index = inflation)
- We've always had a problem with employee retention and this is our opportunity to finally make the various staff positions at CKXU pay a fair wage!
- We plan on instituting a commission-based position geared toward securing advertising and sponsorship agreements - therefore relieving the amount of reliance we put on student funding, allowing us actually SAVE money, and being able to have the resources for further internal programming development (on-air based, educational, etc.)
- Many possible options for use of the extra funds have been explored, but we haven't made any final decisions about it due to the fact that there's a larger battle to be won: ACTUALLY SECURING THE FUNDS = STUDENTS VOTING "YES" DURING THE ALLOCATED VOTING TIME-BRACKET (March 5th - 7th)
- CKXU TOWN HALL #1
- Wednesday Feb 26th, 12:00pm - Ballroom A, next to The Zoo, Students' Union Bldg
