Board of Directors

Comharchumann Raidió Átha Cliath Teoranta (C.R.Á.C.T.) is a community co-operative society which was established on 4 July 1989 as a non-profit organisation with the view to providing a radio service to the Irish-speaking community of the Greater Dublin Area. A Board of Directors, elected at the organisation’s AGM every year, directs the co-operative during the year on behalf of the community of interest in conjunction with the Station Manager. Board members give of their time freely and on a voluntary basis.

Members of the Board are representative of the geographic community of interest which we serve, between ordinary members of the community with an interest in the Irish language, members of voluntary Irish Language organisations, experienced broadcasters, various professions, business people etc. The Board is made up of various members of the community – people who come from different backgrounds, who all have a particular interest in Irish. These different members bring specialist knowledge, skills and expertise in various fields to the Board.

Shareholders elect the representatives at the co-op’s AGM. It is also permissible under the rules to co-opt members onto the Board throughout the course of the year, especially when specialised experience or skills are sought/required or when appropriate candidates are identified to fill gaps in the Board’s membership.
