CKXU Referendum Levy & CPI - 2014
The CKXU Radio Society is Southern Alberta's only campus-community radio station broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week via 88.3FM on the radio in Lethbridge or around the world at www.CKXU.com.
The CKXU Radio Society is a volunteer-driven campus community organization committed to providing open access to the airwaves for alternative and diverse programming that reflects and represents the local communities we serve.
Since 1972 CKXU has provided numerous applied-studies and cooperative learning opportunities and positions available to all undergraduate students of the U of L in the fields of arts and culture, audio engineering, board governance, event planning, fundraising, journalism, live broadcasting, music history, and original programming; as well as numerous student and community employment opportunities.
The CKXU Radio Society relies on the continued support of the University of Lethbridge in the form of a $5.00 (five dollars) levy applied per student per semester (which does not currently account for annual increases in inflation) in order to cover regular capital expenditures and operational costs.
QUESTION 1 (Levy Increase)In order to better provide for the CKXU Radio Society, of which all students of the University of Lethbridge are the primary stakeholders, do you agree to increase the CKXU Levy by $3.00 (three dollars) per student per semester?
