VPR Board Of Directors

The Vermont Public Radio Board of Directors is the entity which is legally responsible for the governance of VPR as a nonprofit corporation. It also holds the FCC broadcast licenses for the radio stations operating as VPR. The operation and organization of the Board is outlined in the Vermont Public Radio Bylaws.

The Board members are selected for their commitment to the mission and goals of VPR, and for their expertise in various fields. The individual Directors serve as volunteers, and they meet in formal session each year at various locations around the region, including the main VPR studios at Fort Ethan Allen in Colchester. All Board and Board Committee meetings are open to the public. The full calendar for VPR Board meetings can be found below.
