About the KLRU Community Advisory Board
The KLRU Community Advisory Board (CAB) is one of two boards that guide the work of KLRU.  The CAB is composed of up to 30 individuals who reflect the diverse interests, concerns, organizations, issues and populations of the Central Texas community. Membership in the CAB is open to anyone who lives in the designated market area for KLRU and who has demonstrated an interest in KLRU.  Members are selected by the existing CAB after being nominated by the staff, or the CAB, or they may nominate themselves. The role of the CAB is to provide a link between the community-at-large and the staff of KLRU. Members elected to the CAB commit to serve a two-year term.  The CAB meets on the third Wednesday, every third month from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at KLRU’s Studio 6A.
